The Tree Cathedral was mentioned by the traveler’s guide Slow Italy in “The top 10 most unique churches in Italy”.
The website is a guide designed to inspire and entice people to travel deeper instead of wider, beyond the obvious and the clichés.
The Slow Italy’s description about the Tree Cathedral:
“The tree cathedral, designed by the Italian artist Giuliano Mauri, is a real-size cathedral made of 42 wooden columns, each of which contains a young beech tree, forming a basilica of five aisles. With the time the growing trees will take the place of their natural “cages” and eventually replace them entirely, point at which the structure will really become a ‘living’ cathedral.”
