  • If the history of art will remember this architectural work to remember the earthquake of 1996 is too early to know. Surely the majority of folignate is contrary (personal statistical survey). Therefore the Council to see it in order to form a judgment "right" and "independent".

  • Walking on the short flight uphill before entering one wonders how a concrete cube can be designed to be a church. When you enter you will be astonished, however: the light that filters through the Windows unexpectedly, double internal volume and bottom glazing create an atmosphere that leads to silence and meditation.

  • Modern architecture for a church is fine, but this is too much! Gaunt building both externally and internally. Features close to zero. Hits something: the entrance door is so shallow that people who carry a coffin to get lower.

  • The cube not Fuksas-in Foligno was strongly backed by the diocese and certain we used Le Corbusier. But the stereometry umbra does not touch the poetics of Ronchamp. Ben seems more credible, with abrupt jump of ages and personalities, invoke the influence of a prototype as the federiciano Castel del Monte and its symbolism – indeed stupor mundi from Foligno took the moves. Let us look at some assumptions for comparison. Sacred geometry, that would seem to affirm the Octagon in CdM, here translated in the cube – sponsored by the three major monotheistic religions tradition converged – but not cube and for forcing metric and for that body accostatogli anacoluthon parish. The cosmic mountain, which in CdM emerges spontaneously by the orography and stands clear base of architectural volume collaborating to locate the axis mundi, here is simulated from the ramp of the churchyard that, jutting from the ground the welding volume in cement, either repressing the true personality; in fact, to soothe the embarrassment of the Union if they disclose images to ramp up wet, staring into a contrast of textures contrived and volatile. The light. A CdM Central Court communicates directly with heaven and the Observatory. Here the three slits in the lid filter light in the classroom, with a likely suggestion apollodoriano-Trinity, but the sky remains unfathomable. Some detail. The wooden crucifix, host, host dispersed figure on the presbytery. And profusely snookered by spiombare of cocoons fixtures: twelve in number as the flames Pentecostals and in dense hang like chandeliers, Mosque. The benches, backrests decidedly inaccoglienti. The sacred wood, bewildered and individuals placed with randomness, suffer everywhere a strong contrast environment. Discounting the predictable misunderstanding and silence of the winter cold, this is the Church that, at least in the compositional and structural choices applied to interior space, ben is distinguished from innumerable small and large offenses built to God throughout Italy. Just ... some of the lovely inspirations, not vaunted plans, remain powerless or disregarded or even unexpressed.
