The World’s Largest Ideal Scientology Church Opens in Milan

Church of Scientology Milan opens stunning new facility in Bicocca district as world’s largest Ideal Church of Scientology, cutting the ribbon on October 31. Some 8,000 attend.

The New Ideal Church of Scientology Milan opened its doors in a ceremony in Italy on October 31 that was attended by an exuberant audience of some 8,000 Scientologists, guests and dignitaries, celebrating what is the world’s largest such Ideal Organization of Scientology, spanning 104,000 square feet.

Mr. David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center, dedicated the sleek and modern new facility, noting, “I am supremely honored to join you on this day transcending all days before it.” The Milan Ideal Org is bedecked in elegant marble, dark millwork and polished stainless steel and accented throughout with red, reminiscent of the city’s famed Ducatis and Ferraris.

Welcoming the Church from the podium were Mr. Gianfranco Tucci, Milan City Councilor; Mr. Marcello Arena, Sports Activities Director of the Milan Municipal Police Force; Mr. Carlo Proserpio, President of the Council of Trade Associations, North Milan; Mr. Gelek Yakar, President of the Mandala Center for the Cultural Preservation of Tibet; and Mr. Fabio Bergomi of the Executive Council for Volunteerism for the Metropolitan City of Milan.

The event marked the latest achievement in a year of unparalleled advances for the Scientology religion, following Ideal Org openings in 2015 in Basel, Switzerland on April 25; in Bogotá, Colombia on July 5; in Tokyo, Japan on August 8; and in East Grinstead, Sussex, United Kingdom on October 18.
