Stone processing

It can certainly be said that Luserna can identify with stone cutting work and the art of stone processing. Actually, the Cimbrian craftsmanship was much sought-after across Europe, especially for the construction of houses, roads and bridges. Depicting a mallet and a bit (stone chisel), typical tools of the old craft, the municipal coat of arms bears witness to this fact. 

The village of Luserna is the visible sign of everything that Cimbrian craftsmen built and left as testimony of their know-how. Walking around town, it is easy to see how workmanship evolved over time, increasingly improving with passing years. The first works were certainly rather rudimentary, but they were to be followed in short order by smoother and more precise craftmanship that gave “life” to elements like stairs, jambs, fountains and capitals. Among the most artistic works, some deserve mentioning: the cross installed in the middle of the cemetery realized by Cristiano Nicolussi Zatta; the cemetery wall with its two columns at the entrance; and, the limestone staircase located on Via Roma and built by Lino Nicolussi Moro at the end of the nineteenth century. By simply strolling through the streets, it is also possible to admire many other works such as niches or statuettes set in the outer walls of residential dwellings.
