Neighborhood

The Val d'Orcia is a wide valley located in Tuscany, in the province of Siena and partly within that of Grosseto in the north and east of Mount Amiata and near the border with Umbria. Crossed by the river Orcia, the center, which gives it its name, is characterized by pleasant landscaped vistas and a number of medieval villages, two of which are well known as Pienza and Montalcino.

The valley is also an important park, natural, artistic and cultural heritage, and July 2, 2004 has been recognized as a World Heritage by UNESCO, for the excellent state of conservation of the landscape, as produced by an intelligent work of human , who has had a significant influence on many artists of the Renaissance. The committee thus justified the inclusion in the list:
"The Val d'Orcia is an exceptional example of the way the landscape was re-written in Renaissance times to reflect the ideals of good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing";
"The landscape of the Val d'Orcia was celebrated by painters of the Sienese School, which flourished during the Renaissance. Images of the Val d'Orcia, and particularly depictions of landscapes where people are depicted as living in harmony with the nature, have become icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the development of landscape thinking in the years ahead.
