  • Given that even I wouldn't go crazy for ultra modern facilities like this (especially if we speak of religious buildings) but if you are in the area in my opinion is worth a visit, is incredible. The necessity of building this Church comes from redevelopment of an industrial neighborhood, which is passed to residential. At the time of construction, there were many controversies, because a work so huge was very expensive and the money the Church would have been able to spend on other activities, however, the construction was made and is very particular. A chimney reworked ago from campanile, although the bells are lower, and the shape of the building is a Sun or flower (the ceiling). Visited on a sunny day is lighted very well. Much marble and wood inside, very austere forms. The confessionals seem closets ... The altar is a marble block. Behind the altar stands the "Holy face" Despite the modernity of the building inside is anything but cold and there is a nice energy

  • I always thought that this church is called Chiesa della Francesca on title stops. Beautiful modern church, visible from far away what a great decorative pipe with spikes.

  • After initial amazement starts to be a bit trivial Notable only the desire to do something good just missing a chance to pray in a manner appropriate to a place very distracting

  • Spectacular and original. With the chimney brush-spiral is a sacred place and monument of Turin post-industrial. Congress the lounge below. Immense

  • MAH, the Bell Tower is original, refitting the smokestack of the previous industrial age ... You have to wonder though if we really need in this neighborhood-dormitory, in 21st century, a new Church! In addition, we reflect on the fact that we got to ninety for funding this project of Botta/Plug 3, while the library/Plug 2 was rejected and now forgotten! Bottom Line:-PRIESTS + MEADOWS!
