Santo Volto

I had read about Santo Volto, Mario Botta’s massive, brick tabernacle church in an industrial suburb of Turin, in the Wallpaper guide.   It was definitely worth seeing, smaller than it looks in photographs, aiming to house thousands, with very good brickwork and what look like air vents outside.   It was being used – not surprisingly – for a tacky photo shoot:-

And the interior in black-and-white:-
