Chiesa di San Giovanni in Bono
ArchitectsArrigo Arrighetti

The church is envisioned as part of the Sant'Ambrogio neighbourhood in the southern suburbs of Milan, which was built by Arrighetti as an urban centre with many amenities and distinguished by a strong formal autonomy. It is made up of numerous buildings that are of the same height and have a curved design and surround a sizable open area where the church, a community center, a nursery and elementary school, and a number of businesses are located. The church is very eye-catching because of its triangular main elevation. The inside is an incredible surprise, with colored light coming in and transforming completely the first brutal perception of the church into a pink-shaded scenography.
