Church of Santa Maria Nuova
Parish of Terranuova Bracciolini
Digital printing on glass
Veneto Vetro has contributed to the construction of the Church of Santa Maria Nuova in the Municipality of Terranuova Bracciolini, providing the panels decorated with a digital printing process that have been used to cover the longitudinal skylight that separates the two aisles.
The church, designed by the famous Swiss architect Mario Botta, is inspired by Jacob’s ladder, significant in the history of art and Christian iconography. The two apses of the structure are divided by a luminous arch composed of the stained glass windows produced byour digital printer.
The depicted drawings are a representation of those created by a great Tuscan artist, the painter and sculptor Sandro Chia. The themes of the images are inspired by the Gospel readings, from the Crucifixion to the Resurrection. Veneto Vetro has always supplied religious artistic windows, contributing to the decoration of imposing structures such as ancient and modern churches.
