In the history of Pove, stone and marble have been of vital importance. The skills of stonemasons shaped stone, producing a wide range of elements used for domestic, architectural and ornamental purposes. Numerous families, such as the Andolfatto and Bosa families, ran artisan workshops and also contributed to works of artistic significance in famous places such as Venice and Bassano del Grappa. Although the tradition has been downsized over time, some workshops continue to keep craftsmanship and creativity alive. The town has established the Municipal Stonemasonry Museum, dedicated to one of its most distinguished sculptors, where tools, drawings and sculptures are on display, as well as a workshop to promote the art of stonemasonry.
