Talented Italian LEGO builder Luca Di Lazzaro dies far too young [News]

The Brothers Brick is a website dedicated to sharing amazing LEGO builds, news, and reviews. We generally write about things that make us happy. But it is with deep sadness that we must share the passing of an incredibly talented builder, Luca Di Lazzaro. The Italian native was a Deputy Commander for the Carabinieri station in Remanzacco, and an avid bicyclist. Unfortunately, it was a bicycling accident that ended his life at the young age of only 45.

    This is really sad news. I was following the progress of Luca’s town with great attention. He was indeed a very talented builder who could master the color palettes incredibly well.

    Very good homage from TBB.

    Thank you TBB for sharing these sad news.
    I was following Luca for about a year now, since TBB’s article about “a Little Corner of Italy” creation. I fell in love with this wonderful build.

    As I was looking at the last picture on Luca’s Flickr account, the next phase of “a Little corner of Italy” is now standing unfinished. It is a sad reminder of how life can suddenly end, when there is still so much to create and fulfill.

    Luca, thank you for all the inspiration you have provided to many of us.

    My Sincere condolences to your family and friends.
    You will be missed.

    I had the pleasure of chatting with Luca numerous times over the past several years, though I never met him in person. In addition to being a very talented LEGO builder, he was also a wonderful person who cared deeply about the various communities he was involved in, from his local town in Italy to the global LEGO building community. The world is a lesser place for his passing.
