Italy is known to the world as a cradle of religious architecture. So it’s no surprise that another one of its churches is under the spotlight.
Milan’s La Chiesa di San Paolo Converso, a now deconsecrated church, has been repurposed into an interactive tennis court cum art space. The brains behind the idea, artist Asad Raza, harbor a love for tennis, the reason why the sport was fed into the inspiration. Aside from the orange court, the church also serves as an exhibition space for contemporary artworks. The frescos and 16th-century paintings of Giulio and Antonio Campi surround the church, making the experience more extraordinary.
