The church dedicated to San Giovanni Battista, but commonly known as the Church of the Highway, is located in the territory of the Municipality of Campi Bisenzio, at the Firenze Nord service area of the Autostrada del Sole A1 Rome-Milan. Wanted by the Autostrade Company in memory of the workers who fell at work in the construction of the Autostrada del Sole, the church was built between 1960 and 1964, based on a project by Giovanni Michelucci and is considered a masterpiece of modern art. Its configuration evokes the image of a tent, which recalls the mobility of the People of God. The church develops on a covered area of 3500 square meters and reaches a maximum height of 26 meters.
