A work of great symbolic value that has represented for the company a source of pride also for the objective complexity of the design.
The study was focused on the supporting substructure, in fact, the Vertebra profiles were designed to withstand the high loads of the cladding.
The goal was to achieve a structure having arches of different sizes between the central and external parts, in order to obtain the evocative image of a cloak that would embrace all the believers.
The flexibility and ductility of the Vertebra System made it possible to recreate the expression of the project design.
