Big Brother Jesus



Here’s a positively Orwellian church in Umbria. I’d be totally creeped out if I were a kid growing up here and every day had to pass this staring visage. I suppose that’s the point: good old time thought police. Check out the scrap metal crucifix on the lawn outside.

  1. That’s gotta be the ugliest piece of architecture I’ve ever seen. The only one that can beat this one, I think, is the hideous green church on the way to Florence, right before the Firenze nord exit (we went to Ikea last week and I saw it again). That one deserves a prize on ugliness.

    1. The town of Passaggio di Bettona is really weird in a Fascistic sort of way. Do you have a photo of the church you mentioned? I’ve been thinking of doing a “hideous churches” feature on the blog. There are so many of them here…
