Church of San Giovanni Battista


Due to severe weather, this structure is temporarily not accessible and remains closed until further notice.

The church of San Giovanni Battista is in the heart of Mogno (a fraction of Fusio). Built between 1992 and 1996, it was designed by Mario Botta and rises on the remains of the original 15th century church destroyed by an avalanche. The contemporary building stands out among the traditional houses of the village because of its cylindrical shape cut in a diagonal and for the decorative use of stone. The force conveyed by the walls of the church are nicely balanced by the lightness of the glass cover.
