May 17, 2022 Yuk Petri

Pienza, a town in Tuscany, 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 Unesco’s World Cultural Landscapes. Pienza was the birthplace of Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini, who would become Pope Pius II. After he became Pope, Piccolomini had the entire village rebuilt as an ideal Renaissance town that would serve as a retreat from Rome.

Artemisia Gallery

Reviewed By davidwU2728PJ - Gricignano di Aversa, Italy

If you want a beautiful piece of artwork to remind you of that special Tuscany visit - this is the place to go!!! I have known Isabella for over 5 years now and she is the best. Her artwork is beautiful and will look amazing on your wall. You will easily pay 3x as much for artwork in other Tuscan cities that does not have the color and features that Isabella is able to produce. Go there! Buy something! You will not regret it!

Stefi, the owner runs this small family business singlehandedly.She is knowledgeable, friendly and has vast experience of the entire Tuscany region. She even offered to pick me up from the train station and take me to Pienza which is about 35 minutes away. I felt totally safe travelling and biking alone while i was in Pienza.Her bikes are excellent and very reliable. Thanks Stefi for making my experience so memorable!

If you walk down the main artery in Pienza, the Corso Rosselino, you will run into the Piazza Pio II. Named after Pope Pius II, this piazza contains most of the main structures in Pienza--- the Duomo, city hall (Palazzo Communale), Palazzo Piccolomini and the Palazzo Borgio now the Diocesan museum. Most of these structures were the product of Rosselino who was the principal architect, engineer and builder of them at direction of Pius II.

Monticchiello

Reviewed By exeman - Tiverton, United Kingdom

Montichiello is a little gem and has so much history for such a small hill town, However, the highlight are the views of the cypress lined curving road to Montepulciano. Also a must do is the strada panoramica to Pienza on a white road.

Teatro Povero

Il Teatro Povero di Monticchiello è un progetto sociale e culturale nato negli anni ’60. Agli inizi di quel decennio il borgo toscano attraversa una profonda crisi collegata alla rapida eclissi del sistema economico e sociale che aveva caratterizzato per secoli la sua esistenza: la mezzadria. Lavoro, cultura e tradizioni vanno rapidamente scomparendo e la popolazione si dimezza. Quelli che per scelta o necessità rimangono iniziano allora a riflettere sul senso delle rapide trasformazioni che stanno travolgendo il loro mondo e le loro identità. In un paese senza un teatro viene cosí deciso di aggregarsi attorno a un’idea di teatro in piazza: una forma di spettacolo che diverrà presto tentativo di ricostruzione collettiva e ideale del senso delle proprie vite. Una forma di resistenza alla crisi.
