Val d’Orcia is on the World Heritage List of Unesco and this is the reason why they decided to insert it in its list:
“The landscape of the Val d’Orcia was celebrated by the painters of the Sienese school, who flourished during the Renaissance. The images of the Val d’Orcia and in particular the reproductions of its landscapes, in which people are depicted living in harmony with nature, have become icons of the Renaissance and have profoundly influenced the way of thinking about the landscape in future years»
The landscape of Val d’Orcia is part of the agricultural hinterland of Siena, redrawn 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.
