Church San Bernardino Mesolcina Calanca

Chiesa di nostra Signora di Fatima

The original Church of Our Lady of Fatima located in Giova was erected in the years 1984-1988, the work of architects Mario Campi and Franco Pessina.


"Designed as a design object, symbolically composed to create an image – no other building in Graubünden is as blatantly postmodern as the chapel of the village of Giova, completed in 1988, high above the entrance to the Calanca valley. It is reminiscent of the original micro-architectures of the "Tea & Coffee Piazza" series, which the Italian homeware manufacturer Alessi commissioned from leading architects such as Aldo Rossi (1931–1997). The unconventional church building was designed by Mario Campi (1936–2011) and Franco Pessina (* 1933), important representatives of the Ticino "Tendenza", who created expressive compositions with rigorous symmetries using basic geometric bodies and abstract quotations from classical architecture(istic)a."
