  • Swiss architect Mario Botta designed this hyper-modern church just outside the centre before the 2006 Winter Olympics. Unusual formal language and ideas (the church tower is a redesigned factory slot of the FIAT factory that used to be here). All modern, only one Madonna forms a contrast. A place of silence-few tourists get there.

  • Of course you have to have an open mind to appreciate such a masterpiece, you do not have to stop at the churches of yeslitus and ancient art. I have not yet studied the whole history of this place, however I understand that it is a huge former industrial area, on which now arise precisely the church (with the bell tower that was a chimney), the gardens with the walkway (you can still see the tubs that used the factories I think to cool the sheets), the Dora Park etc. The church outside looks like a factory, inside it is all light wood, very bright. It is worth going to see it, even if you are not Christian, for the spectacularness of the area.

  • Architects must see in Torino - A bit far from downtown but definitely worth the ride. The surroundings are quite interesting as well.
  • 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 ...
