An unprecedented survey of post-conciliar Italian ecclesiastical architecture. Within the documentary tradition, the photographers characterize in an original way their research through the choice of setting the shot according to a fixed canon, creating a single image for each church that always assumes the same point of view (that of the priest from the altar) and is performed at a very precise moment (that of the sacred function).
