Pienza and its D.o.p Pecorino cheese

The Senese countryside admired, photographed, and visited by tourist from all over the world, owes much of its fame to the art of sheep farming. How else could it have been possible to keep the overgrown fields under control if it were not for the flock of sheep that regularly "cut" them like an army of yardmen. How could we have dealt withe their upkeep without those dry walls made by the shepherds to delineate the properties. This spectacular landscape did not magical apper out of thin air, but is a product of man farmers and sheep.
