Handicraft production has always played a major role in the life of Lana and Environs. The small workshops with more than 370 artisans provide some idea of the high level of specialization. Jewelers, florists, sculptors, confectioners, carpenters and tailors make coveted goods, which are sold in the shops of the pedestrian zone, in Piazza Hofmann/Hoffmanplatz square and Piazza Tribus/Tribusplatz square, as well as in the industrial area.
Some of the best restorers in South Tyrol, especially those working with sacred art, are based in Lana. Other craftsmen are also involved in lesser-known activities, including artistic turning and working with glass and iron.
South Tyrol's largest fruit-growing municipality also provides flourishing trade, craftsmanship and business. More than 150 shops offer a huge and balanced range of products that are popular among locals and visitors alike. The high number of retailers ensures an excellent shopping atmosphere with friendly and attentive service. Lana combines urban flair and a rural location that thanks to good infrastructure and ample parking is easily reachable. Consumers also appreciate the good price-quality ratio of the area.
At all times craftsmanship has played an important role in Lana and the adjacent villages. The municipality of Lana alone counts 372 artisan and crafts shops, the products of which can be found in all local shopping centres, e.g. in the beautiful pedestrian area Am Gries, around the library, the Tribusplatz square as well as in the business park area or the Andres-Hofer-Straße. Lana is famous for its jewellers and wood carvers. Apart from that it is home to brilliant garden designers and florists, bakers, confectioners and producers of excellent ice cream. In and around Lana you still can find carpenters, tailors and couturiers who deliver their products made to measure, exquisite butcher shops as well as enterprises offering niche products such as sacral arts and crafts or rustic furniture.
