Pienza is a town and comune in the province of Siena, in the Val d’Orcia in Toscana (central Italy), between the towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino, 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.

Le Duomo (Cathedral), which dominates the center of the piazza, has a facade that is one of the earliest designed in the Renaissance manner. Although the tripartite division is conventional, the use of pilasters and of columns, standing on high dados and linked by arches, was novel for the time. Wikipedia
