The new church, dedicated to Holy Pope Giovanni XIII, is located close to the 17th century church of San Alessandro Martire in the suburb of Paderno-Seriate south of Bergamo. It's squared ground floor is the center of the whole project site, with a side length of 25 meters and a height of 23 meters. The bearing structure is reinforced concrete, the facades are clad in natural stone slabs of Stone di Verona, while the interior walls are covered with panels of gilded wood. The interior space offers itself as a one and only volume shaped by the lateral wall, light flows in down along the walls from the four roof skylights. The same Verona stone characterizing the buildings exterior is also used, polished, in the interior as a continuity of the whole flooring shaping the plinth of the walls and the liturgy furniture. A stone clad twin apse completes the church space and offers a sculptural work with a crucifixion scene realised by the Italian artist Giuliano Vangi.
