In the heart of Val d’Orcia, in the municipality of Pienza, there is an ancient village which has succeeded in conserving an authentic beauty: Monticchiello.

In the 1200s, the village began to take on its current appearance, with the walls, the cassero and the church, and typical civic institutions were established, all of which were dictated and regulated by statutes written in the vernacular. When the Republic of Siena fell in 1559, Monticchiello was handed over to the Medici, after which it gradually lost the role and importance it once had. In 1777, it became part of the municipality of Pienza.
