Parish Church of St Pius X: Le Badie

The existing church is located on the Via delle Badie and it is currently not meeting the needs of the community. The proposed architectural project consists of a new volume, which incorporates the existing building, expanding its functions and space. A light covering of micro-perforated sheet metal descends from the roof, perimeters the building and opens up, like a sort of veil concealing the entrance, which is characterised by a large window. The function of the sheet metal is also to screen and filter the light that penetrates from the vertical cuts, thus creating a sacred environment suitable for religious functions.
