Maria SS. del Rosario Parish Complex

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
The new church seeks a relationship with the measured and calibrated context.
The project started from the existing, reinterpreting measures, characters, signs and traces both material and immaterial.
The new church is a compact building that occupies the entire available lot and reassembles the urban front, through buildings that reflect the measures and layouts of the existing fabric.
A large volume stands out from the rest of the white building, due to its essentiality and color, with the cladding of red ceramic tiles, echoed by the colored domes of Mediterranean architecture.
The floor plan offers a series of different spaces for the community, and builds a path made up of passages, of rooms with different evocative themes.
There is not a single main facade, both sides, both the one on via Dante Alighieri and on via Matteotti, are treated in a similar way, there is not just one entrance but two, one for each of the two streets.

Applicant and authors of the project
Architecture studio led by architect Samuel Quagliotto with the aim of imagining and building architectures that know how to outline those comfortable daily scripts.
At the heart of the design there is a method that combines theory with practice through a research process. This in order to be able to define a modern architecture that is deeply linked to that architecture that he defined as a specific culture.
Architects Samuel Quagliotto, Martina Tocco, Federica Mengoni, Clarissa Nazzaro, Micaela Didomenicantonio.
