“(Milan) is a stimulating city to work in, ugly, but not provincial. You never meet anyone. That's its great advantage: it’s solitary. The same sort of solitude that pervades New York.”
Vico Magistretti, 1980
Following on from the 1947 call for tenders for the Experimental San Siro District, in 1953 Vico Magistretti and Mario Tedeschi drew up a project for the local church, which was consecrated in 1955 […].
The building, which was innovative in terms of both typology and construction, therefore served to set a sort of lay/religious seal on the QT8 district, symbolic of the years of reconstruction.
