The history of this unusual building is also noteworthy: since the 19 century, the whole village of Mogno has been actually used as a temporary living place during the cattle grazing period. But in 1986 the horrible happened: the church and almost all of the village houses were destroyed by a huge avalanche. Fortunately, the houses weren’t inhabited during the disaster and no one got hurt.
After the avalanche, the small church was redesigned and rebuilt in 1990 by a well known Swiss architect Mario Botta. It is now dedicated to John the Baptist.
