The Santo Volto building of the Archdiocese of Turin was built between 2004 and 2006; it represents one of the operations of urban regeneration in the context of the post-industrial city. The study and the project of the building, with the church, the parish structures, the daily chapel, the presbytery and the offices of the metropolitan Curia and the congress centre, have been made by the famous architect Mario Botta. The Santo Volto is a relevant sign of the contemporary architecture, good at mixing forms and structures of the industrial archeology in the modernity. The church, that is in the ex-chimney of the ironworks and hosts the structure of nine carillon bells, is an exemplar monument of the modern sacred architecture of high artistic level.
