Landscape and hilltop town, Pienza, Italy Featured Val d'Orcia Print

Landscape and hilltop town, Pienza, Italy

Pienza, a town and commune in the province of Siena, in the Val d Orcia in Tuscany (central Italy), between the towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino, is the touchstone of Renaissance urbanism. In 1996, UNESCO declared the town a World Heritage Site, and in 2004 the entire valley, the Val d Orcia, was included on the list of UNESCOs World Cultural Landscapes. Before the village was renamed to Pienza its name was Corsignano. It is first mentioned in documents from the 9th century. Around 1300 parts of the village became property of the Piccolomini family. after Enghelberto d Ugo Piccolomini had been enfeoffed with the fief of Montertari in Val d Orcia by the emperor Frederick II in 1220. In the 13th century Franciscans settled down in Corsignano

The Val da??Orcia is a region of Tuscany, central Italy, which extends from the hills south of Siena to Monte Amiata. Its gentle, cultivated hills are occasionally broken by gullies and by picturesque towns and villages such as Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia and Montalcino.
Its landscape has been depicted in works of art from Renaissance painting to modern photography.
In 2004 the Val da??Orcia was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites because it's an exceptional reflection of the way the landscape was re-written in Renaissance times to reflect the ideals of good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing pictures

Two cypress trees on the hill in Val d'Orcia

The landscape of Val da??Orcia is part of the agricultural hinterland of Siena. The landscapea??s distinctive aesthetics, flat chalk plains out of which rise almost conical hills with fortified settlements on top, inspired many artists. Their images have come to exemplify the beauty of well-managed Renaissance agricultural landscapes.
