Solitary and monolithic, the Church dominates the pre-existing urban context.
The monumental plan with an organic shape is inspired by the geometries of some of the most beautiful Baroque churches, such as the “Basilica of Sant'Andrea delle Fratte” and “al Quirinale”, both in Rome, the Ghisilieri Oratory in Ferrara, the Church of “San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane” and the Church of “Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza” in Rome.
The main facade, which opens onto the new church square, is characterized by a few but essential elements that define the main signs of the Christian tradition: the entrance portal and the cross. The symbol of the cross appears on the façade through slight flaking of the casing that draw shadow lines generated by the intersection with the entrance portal, giving life to a slight incision with at the same time a strong expressive value.
Particular attention was paid to the churchyard, which is characterized as a single path, paved like the interior of the Church, which accompanies the visitor to the entrance door. The interior is pervaded by natural light, the protagonist and symbol of the Christian language. From the top of the Church, a series of translucent veils, like scenic drapes, fill the central space, reverberating natural light through its folds in a play of reflections that harks back to the mystical spectacle of the Northern Lights.
The furnishings in wood and steel, designed by MC D - Mario Cucinella Design, have been deliberately conceived with a minimal and austere design, to highlight the architectural and sculptural elements.
