50 artists from Progetto Arte Poli give facelift to new churches

ANDREA MEZZETTI Assistant, Progetto Arte Poli "Around 80 to 90 percent of our work is related to the Church. From sunrise to sunset, we are thinking about how to give a greater sense to the liturgy. We're also helping priests to deepen their celebration of the Eucharist at Sunday Mass, in every religious rite.â? Among the art pieces in the gallery, there is a giant mosaic of John Paul II that highlights his facial features. There's also this mosaic of the risen Christ made of marble in different planes. This team of artists now has an international reputation for their work that has traveled to places like Japan, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, France and most recently in Chile. ANDREA MEZZETTI Assistant, Progetto Arte Poli "We are doing important work in Coquimbo, Chile, which is the location of the tallest Cross in Latin America. It's the Cross of the Third Millennium, it's close to 300 feet tall and was created by Ramón Bravo. We were asked to make the bronze door to this great temple and bronze figure of the Blessed John Paul II.â? The Progetto Arte Poli was also responsible for the design of the vestments worn by priests at Mass. Their work of precision art goes to show that many forms of artwork have a deeper meaning behind the beauty. OFL/AE MC - GDP - BN
