S.E.A.S.

Church of Saint Elizabeth Seton, piazza Lavagna, LivornoThis strange structure beyond the trees is the bell tower of the church of “Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton”.Church of Saint Elizabeth Seton, piazza Lavagna, LivornoThe church was hosted for years in a prefabricated structure, then came the new compound. The entrance of the church itself, which is only a part of the building, is on the terrace at the first floor.Church of Saint Elizabeth Seton, piazza Lavagna, LivornoThe upper level is easily reached by stairs and a ramp with a view on the small garden below.

Very interesting structure. I like the way it looks from outside in your second image.

At the first glance, I know it is Church as it has a Cross there. But it has unique style of building.

Did you take photo inside?

Interesting tale. Cool place.

Certainly not the architecture I would expect of a Roman church in Italy. Looks interesting, though.

I like the last photo. I can't imagine that anyone thinks the top two are a nice way to honor a saint.

The bells are cool, but not the tower, in my opinion. But I'll stop here.

Strange indeed, the open bell tower.

It certaintly is an odd bell tower or structure. Do the bells ring? MB

I prefer older churches. But the entrance is lovely!

It's a really strange structure! I don't know what's the problem with modern churches but most of them are at least 'strange'. But the entrance is nice:)

E quindi è santa.
Allora dovreste far correggere quella lapide, da Beata a Santa.

This structure looks so modern, I could not think about a church, I mean about the architecture and so on.I liked a lot, mainly those beautiful bells ( I love bells ) and it is different as well.

This has to be the strangest looking church in your country;compared to the 'old churches.'

Except for the cross, I would never have guessed this was a church!

I'm glad she finally got a permanent structure. A saint definitely deserves at least that!

I like the flowerpots out in front in the bottom photo!

The small garden looks lovely but I'm not sure about the church... :-)
