Rudolf Stolz museum and Danse Macabre

Attractions in Sesto

The museum displays over 160 works by the painter Rudolf Stolz (1874 - 1960). In the first half of the 20 century this self-taught artist was one of the most important artists in South Tyrol, surpassed only by Egger-Lienz. In the turmoil of the Second World War Sesto became his second home where he found the quiet necessary for his artistic work. Using only a few strokes he drew and painted typical characters from Tyrolean life. His work also reflects strong piety and poetry. His most famous piece, the “Dance Macabre”, can be seen at the entrance to the cemetery of Sesto.
