Church of Saint Barbara
Licata - invited
The new complex of Saint Barbara was conceived as a village whose shape is inspired by the figurative architecture of the Licata mining settlements. A church that proposed the sense of simplicity, which did not follow the forms of generic modernity, certainly not appropriate in a context such as the one to be erected by the new complex. The Great Explosion is an artistic installation that integrates with the architecture of the church and ends up being part of it. It is a work dedicated to Santa Barbara and is inspired by one of the events that believers associate with the Saint. But it is also identifiable a piece of constellation, a portion of big bang, a part of the origin, of revelation.
