New Cathedral in Turin

A new Cathedral has opened in Turin, in the brand-new post-industrial district built replacing lot of old factories in the area.

Cathedral’s name is “Santo Volto” (Holy Face), inspired by Jesus’ face that lasts on the Holy Shroud of Turin (hosted in the more historical Turin Dome in city centre)

Cathedral calls to mind the factories which were before in this area, symbolizing a big gear with its pawls. The bell tower also is a readapted old chimney.

As u can see in these pictures, the churchyard overlooks the “under construction” district park, which will includes old industrial archaeology finds (the red columns were part of the old iron-steel Fiat pole)

I don't like it that much exept for the inside. But the outside I think it's the brown color makes it look very industrial!

it's a cathedral, because it is also the headquarter of turin Curia.

"parrocchia" means not only the church but the Curch complex.
