    Description :

    The church was built in austere cubic forms and it is dominated by a monumental front tower structured by three arches and nine small horizontal windows. A flat roof supports the geometrical idea of the front.

    The 63 m long church was built on behalf of a confederation of 18 catholic women organizations and it has also community rooms, rectory, baptistery and an arcaded courtyard. The church commemorates the victims of World War I and expresses the desire for future peace. These ideals are represented by the sculptures of St. Mary and the Pieta in the crypt and by memorial columns in the courtyard.
