1958 Enrico Lenti (1909/c. 1981) and Mario Muratori
“The dosage of the openings is in function of the internal environment so to introduce enough grazing light from above creating an effective vibrating chiaroscuro on the ceiling beams. The same light is instead filtered downwards through the inner walls completely perforated in order to have a particular formal expressiveness not detached from the secondary, but not negligible, task to adjust the acoustics. (...) Among the churches of this time, built without too much abundance of means and without undue pretensions of grandeur, this seems one of the most remarkable and significant, for an obvious architectural and spiritual unity that distinguishes it” (Carlo Ceschi)
