Drawing by Rusina Vinazer

Rusina as an artist

Our great-grandmama's "Anda Rusina" shop.

Unfortunately my grand lady Rusina Vinazer (1839-1905) probably from the Vinazer artists family (adequate research has not yet been done) preferred to do business instead of continuing developing her skills as an artist. I never finish to admire the work she did at art school under Prof. Sotriffer. This "strong "woman" was a typical woman of Val Gardena where most of the prosperity was and probably still is due to women's labour, skill and intelligence.

Please come and visit my house - welcome to Wolfgang's family

Villa Rosenheim was build by Rusina Vinazer in 1887. The town was peaceful at those times. During Fascism (1930 AD) my grandpa had to change the name of the villa (German names where banned) to make it sound more Italian. He decided for Rusina her mothers christian name.
