  • You read mixed reviews about this church. Obviously we're talking about contemporary art. Want to look for sources of religious inspiration, which are not internal to us, you vain thing. As an example of modern art I think it succeeded. Attached photos that should be used to describe certain aspects of the local parish Church and appendages.

  • So called it a well-known contemporary art critic although some dispute there was also coming to words like "warehouses" referring to the churches designed by starchitects why not they would invite meditation and would lack of sense of the sacred. However, in the opinion of many people is considered one of the most successful examples of implementation of modern religious architecture. Just to give a few quotes in the group where there are the Church of God the merciful father and the Church of Saint Francis de Sales-always a Roma-works respectively of Richard Meier and Lucretius Carbonara. The project must architects Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon while his inauguration dates back to 2006, the year of completion of work. The most unusual features of the Church are: 1) the great semi-dome resting directly on the building, 2) the large rose-window behind the altar that want to combine the outside inside and fill light Church Hall, 3) a large V-shaped churchyard, at the top there is the monumental cross by Eliseo Mattiacci. Each internal and external shape has a meaning or particular symbol, like the nave whose Crescent shape want to allude to the family that gathers around the altar, the V-shape of the churchyard is outstretched arms to welcome the faithful or the ball and the circle as symbols of the mystery of God and the mystery of the cosmos. Beyond the cross above the Church contains works by contemporary artists, among them Mimmo Paladino with the via Crucis, Pietro Ruffo with the face of Christ, Giuseppe Uncini with cancelled, Carla Accardi Marco Tirelli with glazed with the mural painting, Jan Kounellis with its cast of Christus Pathius, Chiara Dynys with the lighting installation, all work performed to reinterpret the symbols of the Christian faith. As for the exterior has made extensive use of travertine, again with multiple symbolic meanings. Attached to the parish church Holy face of Jesus which includes classrooms, an auditorium, the parish offices and guest quarters where they are used different materials and colors (including intensive).

  • Architecture of the sublime? So he called it a well-known contemporary art critic, even if some protests were coming even in words like "warehouses" referring to the churches created by the so-called archistars because they would not invite to meditation and they would lack the sense of the sacred. However in the opinion of more than someone is considered one of the most successful examples of the realization of modern religious architecture. Just to make some quotation, in the group where the Church of God the merciful father and the church of San Francesco di Sales-Also in Rome-works by Richard Meier and Lucrezio Carbonara respectively. The project is due to the architects Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon, while its inauguration dates back to 2006, year of end of work. The most unique characterizations of the church are represented by: 1) The large semi-dome resting directly on the building, 2) The large window-window behind the altar that wants to unite the exterior inside and fill the church hall with light, 3) the Churchyard in the shape of a large V, at the summit is placed the monumental cross of Eliseo Mattiacci. Every internal and external form has a particular meaning or symbol, like the liturgical room whose semicircular form is intended to allude to the family that gathers around the altar, the V-shaped of the churchyard represents the arms extended to welcome the faithful or the sphere and the circle as symbols of the Mystery of God and the mystery of the cosmos. Beyond the aforementioned cross the church contains works by contemporary artists, including Mimmo Paladino with the Via Crucis, Pietro Ruffo with the face of Christ, Giuseppe Uncini with the gate, Carla Accardi with the stained glass, Marco Tirelli with mural painting, Jan Kounellis with its cast-iron casting of the Christus Pathius, Chiara Dynys with the luminous installation, works all intended to reinterpret the symbols of the Christian faith. As far as the exterior has been made an extensive use of travertine, also here with multiple symbolic meanings. The parish Holy Face of Jesus, which includes the classrooms, the auditorium, the parish offices and the guest house, where materials and colours (even intense) are used, are aggregated to the church.

  • The Church of the Holy Face of Jesus is in Via della Magliana (Rome). It was built, on the project of the architects Piero Sartogo and Nathalie Grenon, between 2003 and 2006 year of the inauguration. They have called it the Church of artists, for the many contemporary artists, who have given significant contributions, so much to represent one of the most successful works of religious architecture in the city. Some peculiarities of the church are: -The semi-dome, in practice cut in half, with the virtual space for the other half left free in the realization of the work. -A large glass window, which illuminates the interior of the church and allows the faithful to open their gaze towards the horizon. -A large churchyard in the form of a "V", in whose summit is the cross of Mattiacci 15 meters high. -The iron railing surrounding the church. -The Via Crucis comprising fifteen enamed terracotta tiles and polychrome by the artist Mimmo Paladino.
