The craftsman's workshop for marble production "Lavorazione Marmo ROSSI" was established far back in 1850.
"Sacred Statues by Rossi" has been a part of the picture for almost ten year and exports its unique products all over the world. Unfortunately, this industry is slowly disappearing due to the invasion of machinery and the lack of interest of the younger generations in manual work.
Michele Rossi owes much of his artistic capabilities to the craftsmanship of his father Ennio and his uncle Domenico although his singular tendency for art has lead him down many personal roads that still today, make his workmanship quite unique. Testimonials and traces (that lead back to the Samnite province and territories) of rare, inimitable artistic expression are found in the products made by "Lavorazione Marmo Rossi" including gateways, incisions, podiums and sculptures.
Michele Rossi's intuition has allowed him to capture the growing devotion of the faithful to Pietrelcina's most important citizen: Padre Pio, declared Saint June 16th 2002 by Pope John Paul II. Ennio Rossi has made his son responsible for this unique, new situation and he looks after it with great competence.
Works of art by great artists and splendid statues made of the prestigious wood found in the Gardena Valley are on exhibition in the Sacred Art Gallery. Today "Sacred Statues by Rossi" has workshops that passionately and tastefully create statues that enrich the Rossi Collections in addition to outlining the characteristics of other sculptures and monuments that become splendid and unique artistic examples.
