the Demetz Art Studio is one of the worldwide leading workshops that manufactures ecclesiastical art and continues the old tradition of woodcarving in Val Gardena. Its roots extend deep into the history of woodcarving, since it is a family business that was founded in 1872 and passed on from generation to generation. During the last decades it has reached worldwide fame for its modern religious sculptures as well as its traditional art.

This family business is in the process of changing: its fifth generation is getting introduced to the business. The senior president, Mr. Ivo Demetz, here seen with his son, Reto, and one of his daughters, Anja, has achieved worldwide fame for his company during his over 55 years of dedicated, successful work, and he is still the general manager of the Demetz Art Studio.

The headquarters and showroom in the centre of Ortisei in a century old building just in front of the Church of St. Ulrich built in 1729.
