The wood trail in Praso
Praso Wood SchoolIn Valle del Chiese the great amount of timber created a major wood supply chain that ranges from domestic use to the wood carving course organised by the Praso Wood School.
It is the primary element of a production chain that is enhanced today by wooden sculptures and statues but that is also used as raw material for construction and the production of household and work items.
Carving coursesContinuing on in the artistic "vein" of this wood carving tradition, the Praso Wood School organises Carving courses for creating wooden statues.
an outdoor museumThis activity is also enhanced by the Wood exhibition, an outdoor museum that exhibits sculptures in local wood. These wooden sculptures describe current and past daily life and are a true interpretation of local life. A reminder of the antiquity of this great wood carving tradition remains today in the ornaments, decorations and internal furnishings in the elegant manors.
