1026 IT - Val d'Orcia (2004)

Brief Description

"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, etc."


"瓦尔·迪奥西亚公园文化景观是西耶那农业腹地的一部分。为了反映理想化的良好治理模式并创造一幅令人愉悦的美景,在公元 14和15世纪划入城市国家领土时进行了重新规划和开发。灰白色的平原上耸立着点点突起的圆锥形小山峰,上面散布着一些定居点,这景致给人一种与众不同的 美感。瓦尔·迪奥西亚的景观是文艺复兴时期农业美景得到良好管理的证明。列入《世界文化遗产名录》的景点包括:反映创造性土地管理体系的田园景象、小镇和 村庄、通往罗马的法兰西珍那古道及其沿途的修道院、客栈、神殿和桥等。"
