VESTER DLACIA by Aron Demetz - Monument in Covelano Marble

In Bolzano South, as soon as the visitor leaves the motorway, he is welcomed by a 9 m high and 267 tons heavy "Covelano Marble Mountain" consisting of 26 individual blocks in the form of the monument VESTER DLACIA by the artist Aron Demetz.

Looking back on a long tradition of sculptured marble, Covelano marble has been regularly used for important and large monuments in the past.

The marble for the Monument was quarried in the Covelano marble quarry, transported to the marble works in Silandro for processing and design, and finally assembled by the Covelano Marble Company in Bolzano South.

The Covelano Marble Company realized the Monument in collaboration with the internationally renowned artist Aron Demetz and the patron Heinrich Gasser.
