La materia che tende allo spirito

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] In the coastal plain of the Agrigento countryside, including the Valley of the Temples and the archaeological site of Cretan origin, we find a place of worship, the composition of which passes through all the themes of the sacred history of Sicily, reducing them to current and evocative experience of the local religious tradition . The church, made up of a mighty slab fragmented and deconstructed, rotated with respect to the road in the direction east-west, is characterized in its opening to the street with a large septum symbolizing a door always open to anyone who feels closer. Travertine and cor-ten materials become symbolic of the transition from the ground to the spiritual, characterizing the place of worship in the coastal Sicilian landscape.
