Description

On 25 April 1986 an avalanche came down in Mogno (Ticino, Switzerland) and destroyed the small 17th-century church. The “archistar” Mario Botta from Lugano was commissioned to rebuild the new church in honour of St. John the Baptist. In 1990, the contemporary church was opened, becoming one of Botta's most important works.

The daring building made from alternating layers of native Peccia marble and Maggia Valley granite was extremely controversial, but eventually became a landmark that is known far beyond the borders of Switzerland. The church does not have any windows. The inside, which seats around 15 people, is only illuminated by natural light streaming in through the glass roof.

From Mogno, with about half an hour's walk in the woods, you can reach Fusio.

Fusio in 2004 was merged with the other neighboring municipalities Broglio, Brontallo, Menzonio, Peccia and Prato-Sornico to form a new and larger municipality, Lavizzara.
