Landscape and hilltop town, Pienza, Italy Featured Historic Centre of Siena 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

Terrapille country house in Val D'Orcia, Siena

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

Vitaleta chapel in foggy mist at sunrise, Val D'Orcia Siena

Amongst the colourful southern Tuscany countryside beside the village of Vitaleta, lies a charming little house of praise called the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta. One of the most photographed churches in Tuscany, this mystical building used to be the home of a Renaissance statue of the Madonna sculpted by the artist, Andrea della Robbia in 1590. Built in the middle of a hill, this spectacular tourist attraction was restored in 1184 by the architect Giuseppe Partini and was recently classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Dotted across this magnificent countryside are many peaceful holiday villas and luxury accommodation to stay in and soak in the undisturbed natural beauty of the area
