Silence [this is not a painting, this is Val d'Orcia]

The photo was taken in the territory of the "Val d'Orcia Park", in the province of Siena (Italy). "Val d'Orcia Park" is at "UNESCO World Heritage Site" as cultural landscape: this recognition was assigned in 2004 by the "World Heritage Committee" for the excellent state of landscape conservation, thanks to intelligent intervention by mankind, and for the inspiration it gave to artists during the Renaissance.
