Harmony between man and nature

The Crete Senesi and the Val d’Orcia with their unique landscapes are lands of ancient tradition in wheat cultivation. Cradle of rural renaissance and sharecropping, this fabulous area is a noble example of sustainable rural development. Here wheat cultivation methods respect territorial harmony and wheat is sown on the hills in the cultivable land between the olive trees and the rows of vines. The Val d'Orcia is characterized by carefully cultivated hills occasionally broken by grades of cypress trees, gullies and by picturesque villages such as Pienza. It inspired so many Renaissance painters who depicted people living in harmony with nature. It has been recognized as an heritage site by the World Heritage Convention for the beauty of landscape and the balance between nature and human activity.
