To be included on the UNESCO World Heritage List, “sites must be of Outstanding Universal Value and meet at least one out of ten selection criteria.” Both the Val D’Orica and the villiage of Pienza are World Heritages sites and rightly so! This IS the little heralded heart of Tuscany.
Now in our opinion the Moricciani family of Pienza which is within the Val d’Orcia should be a World Heritage Family! Thus, we (recent guests at Cretaoile) hereby accord The Moricciani family World Heritage List designation inscribed upon the basis of cultural criteria (iii) “to bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a civilization which is living...;”
Luciano, Carlo, and yes you especially Isabella, along with your family are together a masterpiece of “OUTSTANDING UNIVERSAL VALUE”! The Val d'Orcia, Pieza and all that we experienced was made impossibly outstanding through your passion for what is “simple and cannot be improved"! – Chris & Jodi - most appreciate guests who cannot return soon enough.
