  • TITLE:Chiesa del Santo Volto
  • CONSTRUCTION:2006 - Torino, Italia

Santo Volto Church is the product of an urban development scheme aimed at recuperating industrial areas abandoned in the 1970s, without losing that characteristic feeling of having been a "citadel of labour". The new centre encompasses all the services of a Curia forced to measure up to the risks and hopes associated with a church serving the city.
