Natività di Maria a Bravetta is a modern parish church at Via di Bravetta 633, in the southern part of the suburb of La Pisana in the Gianicolense district.

The parish is administered by the Canons Regular of the Immaculate Conception.

The church was completed in 2000, up a driveway away from the road. The frontage is topped by a segmental arch in concrete, which is the end of the roof of the central part of the church. Below this is a large window bounded by the chord of the segment. The large entrance is bounded by a square in concrete, surrounded on its three sides by a strip window. A short vertical strip connects this latter to the segmental window. The rest of the façade is in red brick.

The plan of the church is a transverse rectangle. The segmental roof forms a fan –shaped central area which focuses on the altar where there is a semi-circular apse. The other two parts of the roof are flat, except for a triangular campanile in brick rising above the left hand part. The large bell openings of this contain a Latin cross each.
