In the heart of the Pollino National Park, in the southern Apennines, in the municipality of Mormanno, on the border between Basilicata and Calabria, stands the Church of Santa Maria Goretti.
A monolithic, dynamically shaped building made of white concrete.
The church was designed and built as a result of the Italian Bishops' Conference's initiative to promote the quality of church architecture.
The liturgical hall is characterized by an organic plan, which identifies four chapels, embellished with works of art made from materials typical of the Baroque tradition, from which the church was inspired: marble, bronze, and mosaic.
On the outside, a cross is engraved in the white concrete plastic volume to identify the entrance portal to the classroom and, illuminated at night, is visible from afar like a beacon.
