A unique example of an ideal Renaissance city and a jewel of fifteenth century architecture, Pienza still conserves the original urban characteristics designed by Bernardo Rossellino and conceived by humanist Pope Pius II Piccolomini. The visit will allow you to discover a beautiful and exceptional place, enriched by the magnificent landscape of the Val d’Orcia, a World Heritage Site.
– Visit to the ceramic workshop by Linda Bai (www.ceramichebai.it), located in the medieval part of Pienza, a charming place with its old tufa caves dating back to 1000.
Linda will welcome visitors with a practical demonstration of artistic ceramic decoration.
– Visit to the wrought iron workshop by the Biagiotti family (www.biagiottipienza.com).
For over one hundred years, the Biagiotti family has been making craft objects of high value using the technique of iron forging, done exclusively by hand with only the use of fire and hammer.
The guided tour demonstrates the various stages of wrought iron production, from design to manufacture. The workshop also has an extensive showroom where visitors can admire the finished objects.
