Even now, "Churches" like this

The Italian blog Cantuale Antonianum has news of a building in Foligno Indovina che cos'è ("Guess what it is") It is, in fact, the Church of ... (sorry, I couldn't find that anywhere), a symbol of the rebirth of Foligno after the earthquake. Apparently, its cubic dimension refers to the book of Revelation (Rev 21.16) although there is no jasper, emerald, amethyst, pearl etc. The light which comes in vertically and horizontally reminds of the light of Christ, you see.

What a tragedy that Churches like this are still being built!

Here is the official site: Nuova Chiesa di Foligno
