“Trittico Toscano - Homage to Pienza” (Tuscan Triptych - 2015) is a
homage to the historic town of Pienza in Tuscany, Italy (UNESCO World
Heritage). Pienza, in the beautiful region of Val d'Orcia (south of Siena), is
widely known as the "ideal" city of the Renaissance, the creation of the great
humanist Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who became Pope Pius II. With architect
Bernardo Rossellino, a project was conceived, and in only three years (1459-
1462) a series of beautiful buildings were constructed: the cathedral, the papal
residence (Palazzo Piccolomini), the municipal buildings, and the town square.
The first movement of the Triptych, Ricercare, is inspired by the stateliness of
the Cathedral, and is written in a serious contrapuntal style with Renaissance
