  • The Church, first built in Turin in the 21st century, lies on the so-called Spina 3, i.e. that part of the city of Turin between neighborhoods San Donato, Madonna di Campagna and Parella, a massive industrial area insiedatisi time starting Since the 1960s, including the buildings of Michelin, Teksid, Deltasider S.p.A., Pianelli & crossbar, incomplete variety of steel mills. Since 2000 where there were only more disused industrial plants, the area has been undergoing a radical urban renewal, giving the area a public park which, at 456,000 square meters, is one of the largest lungs the city's Green. Thus was born the need, as he declared the Cardinal Poletto, to "provide religious services to the new neighbourhood" and to build, "the first Church of the 21st century." The Church was built in just five years and occupied over one hundred workers between workers and professionals and is located at the intersection of via Borgaro and Switzerland, not far from the Dora course; the eponymous parish was inaugurated on December 8 2006 by Archbishop Parker.

  • From crappy outside but inside is to discover. Bright, spacious and almost doesn't look like a Catholic Church. Distinctly innovative architecture

  • una nuova chiesa nel quartiere trasformato da industriale a residenziale proprio qui al posto di questa struttura religiosa , negli anni 60 c'era un fabbricato industriale di una fonderia , era un edificio alto in mattoni e con grandi vetrate... la struttura odierna ripercorre per certi tratti architettonici il ricordo dell'edificio pre esistente ... a new church in the neighborhood transformed from industrial to residential right here in place of this religious structure, in the 60's there was an industrial building of a foundry, it was a tall brick building with large windows ... today's structure retraces, in certain architectural details, the memory of the existing building ... o nouă biserică din cartier sa transformat din industrie în rezidențială chiar aici în locul acestei structuri religioase, în anii '60 a existat o clădire industrială de turnătorie, era o clădire din cărămidă înaltă, cu ferestre mari ... Structura actuală reia în unele detalii arhitecturale amintirea clădirii existente ... une nouvelle église dans le quartier transformé d'industriel à résidentiel juste ici à la place de cette structure religieuse, dans les années 60 il y avait un bâtiment industriel d'une fonderie, c'était un grand bâtiment en brique avec de grandes fenêtres ... La structure d'aujourd'hui retrace dans certains détails architecturaux la mémoire du bâtiment existant ...
  • Beautiful church that honors contemporary architecture. Curious building structure reminiscent of a medieval tower that contrasts with the beautiful structure of the internal environment, which looks like a true place of peace and silence. To see.

  • The Church has a particular plant Heptagonal, recall of churches a single Hall of Baroque, despite its exceptional modernity and its vertical tension

  • Interesting example of architecture. For those who are skeptical as I was at the beginning, I recommend to visit the Interior

  • Hideous architecture that nothing conveys the beauty of faith. The Interior is lackluster and devoid of paintings or statues, from Protestant tradition. The outside looks taken from cyberpunk setting. Coming from a small province of Piedmont, I was thrilled. Dismiss the faithful Catholic Church you're doing well.
