Mater Misericordiae Church

Mater Misericordiae Church, from the 1950's 'til now

The Church of Mater Misericordiae in Baranzate is one of the most interesting examples of religious architecture in Italian Modernism. In 1956, it determined - at the hands of the architects Mangiarotti and Morassutti - the onset of prefabrication in Italian architecture and tested innovative techniques using reinforced/pre-compressed concrete.

The Church, which was affected by a strong degradation of materials, has been the subject of a restoration project entrusted to SBG Architects and Giulio Barazzetta in 2013. But how closely to its original design should it be restored to? The design team decided to keep the original layout of the Church, adapting the interior space to new needs and replacing the outer covering, now in white glass.
