The town of Vajont was created as the new hometown for the inhabitants of Erto e Casso who had survived the tragedy of 9 October 1963 but were forced to leave their houses. The result is a typical 20th-century ideal town, characterized by the rationalization of the Renaissance model: a strictly geometrical plan (a grid of perpendicular streets and terraced houses) resulting in the metaphysical coldness of social spaces, though attempts have been made at urban upgrading. Aesthetic clarity fits in gracefully, instead, with everyday life in the church and cemetery, planned by architects G. Gresleri and S. Varnier, who have managed to infuse a deep sense of spirituality in the essential volumes of reinforced concrete.
