At Paciano the idea of a village becomes the '' ideal village ''
In 1993 the EU assigns to Paciano the recognition of '' Ideal Village
'', for its beauty, the maintenance of the suburb and its road conditions
When in 1300 the inhabitants of the '' old
'' Paciano decided to abandon their own houses and to move a little bit
lower to build their '' new '' Paciano, they never would have believed to get a
so tall recognition of their own job. They had the idea to build a marvellously
strengthened town, slightly more to valley of that today is called Torre
d'Orlando, so they gave life to an '' Ideal Village ''. Such
recognition has been decreed in 1993 by the European Community, as '' late ''
attested of the good job developed by the ancient inhabitants of Paciano.
Inaccessible castle for anybody at that time, and marvellous city in which to
live today, it maintains completely unchanged the spellbound charm of a
medieval suburb. The idea of an intact place in its native beauty, escaped to
the time, is strengthened by the isolation of which Paciano has enjoyed during
the centuries and almost up to our time, if we consider that the first real
road that connected the village with the world was built in only 1810. The
visitor that pass in that suburb won't be able whether to lose himself to
immediately find himself in another space and in another time.
Recently Paciano has entered into the
special club of the Most beautiful Italian Suburbs adding another
prestigious frieze to its fame. This recognition is granted with extreme
parsimony, since the canons to respect are very restrictive, but whoever goes
to Paciano he can realise that the title is broadly deserved. Endless panoramas
give calm and serenity of mind, they sustain the smile and they send away the bad
mood, while the clear and clean air is the necessary against the daily city
stress. Other rhythms and other times govern Paciano, kingdom of the
equilibrium of the man with the environment and with himself. Paciano seems to
possess the proper tools to unhinge every type of resistance and to set the
visitor in his best dispositions, to rapt him and to return him to the world
