Le chiese pazze di Helsinki.

Fra gli esempi di architettura moderna e azzardata del xx secolo ad Helsinki,  una visita meritano sicuramente due edifici religiosi in particolare:  la piu’ importante e’ Kallionkirkko,  dal lineare stile cubista,  sostenuto e imponente,  ma con all’interno dei teneri e raffinati decori tardo-liberty.

Perfino il Crocifisso e’ cubista.

La seconda chiesa con architettura assolutamente interessante e piu’ unica che rara, si chiama Mikael Agricolan kirkko. Dedicata al monaco che ha plasmato la lingua Finlandese dalle originarie rune creando  nuovi termini e soprattutto la scrittura

L’ingresso  con l’alto inconsueto pinnacolo.

Crazy churches in Helsinki.   In Helsinki there are two churches worthy a visit for their modern style: the first is Kallionkirkko,  half way between Liberty and Cubism.  The stylish,  delicate flowery decorations of the interiors are in striking contrast with the severe outer structure.  The second is Mikael Agricolan kirkko,  dedicated to the scholar clergyman who fixed rules for written Finnish language in the XVI century.  The most outstanding feature is the high steeplechase,  but interiors are as unconventional.
