MAGNIFICAT ITALIA: your travel begins under the hugest cupola in Europe

The fifth cupola in the world, if we consider the dimension. Vicoforte shrine in Mondovì, a suggestive location near Cuneo, in Piedmont, registers secular history disclosed to our eyes.

MAGNIFICAT ITALIA: the first level in Santuario di Vicoforte

Ready to wear protections and helmets, useful to climb over this architectural wonder, ready to explorere some places never shown to the great public, it is an astonishing experience. Our "Santuario di Vicoforte" in Mondovì opened its secrets ramparts now eligible to visitors and tourists.
After a brief introduction about history, design and projects with a more or less catastrophic conclusion, you will be guided to the first level of your journey.

Quite impressive as well, mostly when you come outside to see Mondovì from an unknown perspective such as the roof of the church...

And my favourite view: look at that small white car under our feet! You should try this feeling: it is a strange, weird yet powerful awareness. We are so tiny and small in the world, yet capable of build such architectural wonders, like no other known life form so far. A deep and intimistic moment, maybe because I always become thoughtful on roofs.

Your tour will continue inside the real cupola roof (but I'll keep this secret), and I think that if you'll come for some reason in Piedmont, this should be a place to be seen. Not only for the artistic value of the church, but also for some kind of inner travel that disclosed through the paths of your heart
