Antonio Lasciac

Antonio Lasciac (Italian) or Anton Laščak (Slovene) (1856–1946)[1] was an Italian architect, engineer, poet and musician of Slovene descent.[2]

Heritage[edit]

Lasciac was born to father Peter Laščak and mother Jožefa Trampuš in Friulian fourth Podturn in Gorizia 21st in September 1856. He was the first of ten children. Three of his siblings died in childhood.[citation needed]

Descendants[edit]

He immigrated to Gorizia and opened a business with Mihael Trampuš, another Slovene. He fell in love with Trampuš's daughter and took over his crafts workshop after the marriage. Her official Italian name is written as Gioseffa. Her father Mihael was born in Gorizia, to farmers from the surrounding Karst Plateau. Lasciac's wife Marija Alojzija Plesničar was Slovene and bore three children with unusual and fully Italian names: Plautilla Angelina Francesca, Fabbrizio Antonio Giuseppe and Romeo Italico Alessandro.[citation needed]

Lasciac designed buildings in Gorizia[1] and many Eastern capitals and cities, especially Egypt.[1] The Khedive Palace in Istanbul and the Tahra Palace in Cairo (1907) are among his most notable works.
