Marble Sculptors

Marble Sculptors in Lasa/Laas

Lasa/Laas is a unique place in South Tyrol. Situated at the foot of Mt. Ortles, it is one of the coldest villages in the region, famous for its exquisite slow-maturing fruit, especially apricots and pears , as well as for its renowned marble quarry. Lasa marble is famous for its specific pure quality, used for monuments and official buildings. Soon it will also be used to decorate the new Ground Zero metro station in New York.

Due to its marble production, it is also home to the traditional stone carving faculty “Johannes Steinhäuser“. Many well known contemporary sculptors, such as Venske and Spänle, Karl Grasser, Friedrich Gurschler, Michael Höllrigl and Armin Joos, have studied here. Every August the traditional festival “Marble and Apricots” takes place in Lasa, combining the two main attributes of the village.
