  • Stands tall and slightly anonymous northern outskirts West of Foligno area new hospital the Church of Ferris a concrete cube with another cube. you know nothing ever seen in the area. A little cold to my taste But worth a visit

  • Work of a famous architect, the Church is a concrete cube desolate and bleak, at least in this writer's opinion. There is anything but the sense of light and trscendenza that you dream about

  • I don't understand. A huge cube in an area where even the hospital is harmonized in the landscape. What's the point?

  • Amazing to see Massimiliano Fuksas architecture in real life, hidden design gem in the middle of no where. Nice to see a contemporary interpretation of Catholic Church.
  • 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.

  • questionable, however fascinating: how man uses the material. Then, each religion is where the search. Beautiful the stations of the cross.
