Cinquant'anni, cento chiese

L'edilizia di culto nelle diocesi di Firenze, Prato e Fiesole (1946-2000)
  • Piero Degl'Innocenti,

Modern churches do not enjoy even a fraction of the prestige of the ancient ones, even the most modest; they are generally renowned for being monstrosities or missed opportunities. But if we don't restrict ourselves to aesthetic judgements, we can see that they represent a significant construction phenomenon: for example, over a hundred were built in the Florentine area in the second half of the twentieth century, often designed by little-known architects, although not all. Taking an overall glance at what has been done in a particularly stimulating environmental and cultural context, and in a period that as we know was marked by profound changes, may imply focusing the terms of that problematic relationship between the Church and the technicians that ought to generate the new sites of the sacred.
