Hillside flowers and 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.
