On April 25, 1986, at 7.15 in the morning, an avalanche breaks down in Mogno in the Maggia Valley and destroys the small church of St. John the Baptist from the 17th century. A committee for the reconstruction of the church is convened immediately and the architect Mario Botta is given the corresponding task. The project and its realization are accompanied by numerous polemics. Nevertheless, architect Botta was able to create one of his most important works here.

An exceptional, elliptical building with a sloping roof in an equally exceptional location.
The hamlet of Mogno belongs to the highest town in the Lavizzara valley (1280 m asl), Fusio. And there is a real attraction there. The Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista, a building by Mario Bottas.
