The church of Madonna del Carmine in Montegiordano is sitting in a storage hanger. The 19th century Calabrian building was purchased by artist Francesco Vezzoli for his show at MoMA PS1, where he planned to reconstruct the church brick by brick. The Italian culture ministry is holding up the transport, although Vezzoli says his contract states that the building is free from any restrictions, governmental, cultural, religious, or otherwise.
