That is an excellent accomplishment. This is some wonderful architecture. I do like the front of the building.

Congratulations on your blog award - well deserved! I guess if we're patient, then you'll show us INSIDE the church, too, non?

Randy said...

Wonderful news! Congratulations on your award. You deserve it.

Hilda said...

Whoa, congratulations! That's so cool!

And the church is awesome. One of the few modern buildings you've shown us. I think I'm beginning to understand your fascination for modern skyscrapers. :)

Lovely architecture! Although I would never have guessed it was a church. Very modern :D

Dina said...

Blog of the Week! Mazal tov to you both!!
Italy and Livorno are lucky to have you as photo bloggers. Nice to learn more about you in the interview.
Interesting that you write in English and then translate.

That church is so different from the old ones. I haven't seen a new church in years. I wonder how it feels inside.

Bravo!
This church looks a bit like a boat with a huge prow.

First of all I need to say that blue sky is awesome!
So modern architecture in this church, it's beautiful indeed!Reminds me the modern buildings in Brazilia and the architect Niemeyer.
Wonderful pictures!

I am not sure I like the architecture for a church, sorry, but it looks more like a building with offices, conferences or a public library...( re the last photo.)
The ITALY MAGAZINE had a very nice and interesting blog this week. CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU !!:)

Congratulations!!!

This church is certainly not like most of the houses of worship you see in Italy! It's a bit too space-y for me.

JM said...

The architecture is fantastic and so are these shots!
Congratulations to Livorno DP!

Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition, VP! I'm not so fond of this building; it is rather cold and uninviting with those hard edges. I'm no fengshui expert, but that bell tower makes me think of the I M Pei-designed China Bank in Hong Kong. When that was built it was roundly criticized for its sharp corners that are feared to impart bad luck to its neighbors.

I guess the Swedish Lucia Bride should pay them a visit!
