    White Dionyssos Marble 

The building is a simple cube with no windows. The exterior reminds of any other modern steel frame construction. What makes Pius Church unique is the very thin, almost transparent Dionyssos marble slabs that were used for the façade,  instead of glass, concrete or metal. They are as transparent as traditional church window stained glass, giving an exquisite light result. The daylight shines through the natural structures of marble with warm colours of ochre, creating a mysterious atmosphere.
