The "Tribute to Human Dignity" is an arcade on a hill outside of Solomeo made out of huge blocks of travertine.
"To restore the dignity that belongs to work and mankind: this is the dream which the hamlet of Solomeo has always yearned to fulfill. The School of Crafts, inspired by Renaissance workshops and the Arts and Crafts Movement of William Morris and John Ruskin, aims to provide an actual experience of humanism and moral learning."

A spectacular view of the town.
"Assisi and Norcia are two of my favorite places to visit in Umbria when seeking a more quiet moment.

The respect for the past and the modern needs of today’s communities."
Cucinell's restoration project extends beyond just the hamlet.
