  • I have always admired the ancient churches, Romanesque stone ones or not, even those with few "frills". This St. Luke to Prenestino postwar reinforced concrete and believe in "curtain", with a large courtyard and plenty of space. After the renovation of some year now spent, where they were "created" two churches, one for weekdays and great for Sundays. The Interior I liked most though the style is modern.

  • Is one of the first churches of the fifties, proposing the modern style in religious architecture, in which the exposed concrete goes beyond the purely technical significance, becoming formal, in close connection with that structural

  • The parish church of Saint Luke at Prenestino is one of many examples of modern churches (20th century) that crowd the Roman suburbs populated in relatively recent times. Designed and built in the years ' 50, leverages architecturally daring solutions rather (use of concrete and brick Bell Tower without walls, presence of two churches). If the outside is not very monumental, the Interior is undeniably good interest: the entrance opens straight to the lower Chapel, elliptical, with entry and high altar on the ends of the minor axis (then quaintly development longer in width and length); simple and bright, is enriched by a beautiful glass mosaic depicting the Madonna and child. The upper Church, accessed by flights of stairs, is broader and used for Sunday celebrations; here stands out above all the back wall, covered with mosaics, and, at Christmas, the Nativity scene that reproduces the model of the Church and the neighborhood Prenestino in which it is located. I mean, if Rome is characterized by the abundance of ancient churches of artistic value, there are interesting examples of contemporary times and device placement, and St. Luke is a good representative. For those who want to go, it's near the Malatesta station of Metro line C.

  • I seemed to have exposed the My opinions all positive! The very Rev. Don Romano is the right person in the right place! Mario's Word! Maybe there is a bit of me on this choice but I prefer to Talk to him with a coffee as suggested (coffee) Thanks this opportunity I missed.

  • What about... born and raised there! I am not a Catholic Christian but as a child inevitably we went to Mass on Sundays. Then we grew up and that of St. Luke became our meeting place until the age of 25 when I moved in with my partner and I attended less and less friendships. I went back a short time ago with my daughter and my brother because we had to buy time... What good memories! However I can not give a review on the functions or operation of the church, I can only say that inside has been completely redone, I do not speak of the various internal chapels that had been redone already for years (before it was a single beautiful and huge church) i referring to the sacrisity that has been repainted.

  • I am not from this parish but from a "neighbor" and now I also live outside the area but my children for convenience do the catechism here... Well I was really amazed to have found such a beautiful community "captained" by Don Romano.... Engaging and always full of initiatives.... It is a pleasure to hear the word of God on Sundays at Mass.
