In the church of San Rocco in Sambuceto, Mario Botta reduces to their most concise expression all the elements of the architectural composition, which is thus stripped of everything that may be superfluous. The project gives a signal of order within the fragmented and fragile urban scene, pursuing a desire for the city that is present from the start.
