function church, religion
contributed by HelleBeelden

Aside from a glazed roof, this church is enveloped, inside and out, by alternating runs and blocks of grey Riveo granite and white Peccia marble—both native to the region. The modern marble and granite Church of San Giovanni Battista (St. John the Baptist), designed by Ticinese architect Mario Botta (born 1943) is the main attraction for the little village of Mogno. The church was erected between 1994 and 1996 on the site of its 350-year old predecessor, which was levelled by an avalanche in 1986. This catastrophe also claimed several of the homes in the village, although luckily no-one was injured in this event. (text from Wikipedia)
