ROME, Oct. 26 — If any city is well supplied with churches, it is surely Rome. Yet 10 years ago, after concluding that 600,000 people here had no convenient place to worship, the archdiocese began an ambitious building program. On Sunday it consecrated the 50th new church, and the most spectacular: a striking Modernist structure designed by Richard Meier around three soaring “sails” of white concrete.
I might be a fan of SF and a tech geek, but I guess I am just old fashioned when it comes to Church architecture. I just can’t imagine someone living in Rome and choosing this as their church to go to.
