Welcome on Perathoner.com

Helmut, part of the famous woodcarving family-tradition of “Perathoner” from Ortisei / Val Gardena, has been working on religious sculptures most of the time in the last 28 years. But it was only recently that he discovered his interest in profane arts and is now active with various works at different expositions in Italy and other countries. Do you want to catch the artist live at work or do you have any special wishes? You are welcome anytime for a visit.
