Photographer's Note

La Val d'Orcia è stata iscritta nel 2004 dall'UNESCO come luogo patrimonio mondiale dell'umanità. La Val d'Orcia è un eccezionale esempio di come il paesaggio naturale sia stato ridisegnato nel periodo Rinascimentale per rispecchiare gli ideali di buon governo e creare un’immagine esteticamente gradevole. Il paesaggio della Val d'Orcia è stato celebrato dai pittori della Scuola Senese, fiorita durante il Rinascimento. Le immagini della Val d'Orcia ed in particolar modo le riproduzioni dei suoi paesaggi, in cui si raffigura la gente vivere in armonia con la natura, sono diventate icone del Rinascimento ed hanno profondamente influenzato il modo di pensare il paesaggio negli anni futuri.

UNESCO inscribed, in 2004, Val d'Orcia as World Heritage site with the following words: the landscape of Val d'Orcia is part of the agricultural hinterland of Siena, re-drawn and developed when it was integrated in the territory of the city-state in the 14th and 15th centuries to reflect an idealized model of good governance and to create an aesthetically pleasing picture. The landscape'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. The inscription covers: an agrarian and pastoral landscape reflecting innovative land management systems; towns and villages; farmhouses; and the Roman Via Francigena and its associated abbeys, inns, shrines, bridges etc. The Val d’Orcia is 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. The landscape of the Val d’Orcia was celebrated by painters from the Siennese 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 nature, have come to be seen as icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the development of landscape thinking.
