    Description :

    The other building of this period, the Muurame Church, though far simpler and much more modest in budget, nevertheless allowed Aalto to express his newly found enthusiasm for Italian design in the realm of church architecture; this was his first commission to design a complete ecclesiastical building. If this church did not possess a certain Finnishness, it might be mistaken for a church on a similar lonely hilltop site in or near almost any small town in North-central Italy.
