Venosta Valley is home to a vibrant and well-known scene of contemporary architects. Pioneers of form and design such as Walter Dietl
, Werner Tscholl
, and Arnold Gapp
provided a start to the good reputation of Venosta Valley architects and architectural sites created here, which attract an international following.
But Venosta Valley is also a valley of artists
, stonemasons and sculptors
. Ultimately, the Johannes Steinhäuser school for stonecarving in Lasa
has contributed to this. Every two years in the marble village of Lasa, the highly acclaimed Franz Tumler Literature Prize
is also awarded.
