In the small square of Radicofani, enclosed by a Romanesque church that is a delight for the eyes and sweetness in the heart, there is a plaque like many others set on a wall. Italy is littered with gravestones, memorial stones and monuments, as if we had difficulty remembering and therefore there was a need to point out certain things often. Like, for example, that the Val d’Orcia is a UNESCO cultural landscape. What does ‘cultural landscape’ mean in today’s disaster-stricken Italy? That here you can admire a part of it, and this part must be defended, preserved, protected, protected and enjoyed to the full. It is our duty, our right. And without becoming all like Ghino di Tacco, who lived here in the second half of the 13th century, plundering the rich to give to the weak like a new Robin Hood, we admire and enjoy such beauty and do everything to defend it from building abuses, from speculation and from the Italian atrocities that unfortunately we know well.
