  • Colossal work his current abode, colossal work on health and research, has left, after his stay on Earth, the sign for centuries to come. This is the meaning and not ostentation, beyond the ori or qualities present dwelling P Pio

  • Throughout the Church, but I dare say in the whole area hovers a particular area, really sacred, I'll be for the spirit and the "Credo" in Padre Pio holy hour will be for that hope that every human being has. However, both the environment and the atmosphere, it is a place that is worth a visit, and a prayer.

  • As usual Renzo Piano keeps its circular style. New and modern church, I think it's only for how it is structured.

  • It's like paradise
  • This is where they move Padre Pio's body.
  • It's my heaven house
  • Super
  • The first time I saw her I was thrilled; the second almost horrified. Great, too modern and distracting the upper Church, too sumptuous the inferior Basilica, with much pageantry, too (in my opinion of course). A church to welcome pilgrims on great occasions which, however, "normal", is too distracting ... especially in acoustics. At the end it should be a place to pray, in recollection; It is, however, not suitable as it distracts both above, by looking around in those spaces ... endless, both in the crypt, blinded by bright colors too ... those of gold. By Renzo Piano I would expect something much more sober (as it was padre Pio), he could get really in touch with the most high, in prayer.
