Santa Maria Goretti Church
Mormanno, Cosenza - first prize
The church, dedicated to Saint Maria Goretti, has been designed to feature as a distinctive building within the context it is placed. The main fa├žade, which overlooks the new square of the church, is characterized by few essential elements, which define the main symbols of the Christian tradition, such as the entrance door and the cross. The layout has a natural look and a flowing structure, which draws inspiration from the curves of Baroque architecture. It creates a monumental and dynamic appearance, in which the central space relates differently with each one of the side chapels.
