Resurrezione di Nostro Signore Gesù Cristo a Giardinetti is a modern parish church at Via degli Orafi 120 in the suburb of Giardinetti, which is in the Torrenova district. (It is actually located round the corner in Via Turino di Sano.) It is just south-east of the junction between the Via Casilina and the Circonvallazione Orientale.

The church is administered by secular clergy from the diocese of Novara.

It was designed by Rinaldi, and completed in 1963. The ground plan is of an irregular hexagon, with the entrance and altar sides shorter than the side walls. The church is lengthways to the street, and a rectangular narthex occupying the entrance side has the actual entrance at one end. The entrance façade is gabled, with a porch attached having a sloping tiled roof and a Cross of Jerusalem above. At the other end of the narthex is a low campanile with a heptagonal plan, the side facing the street being longer than the others. The narthex and campanile is in grey stone blocks with horizontal stripes in red mortar and with corners and roof eaves in white. The main body of the church is low, in yellow stone with mortar in red and with small rectangular windows. The roofs of church, narthex and campanile are quite steeply pitched in tile, with overhanging eaves. There is a projection shaped like half a pyramid cut across the diagonal on the crest of the roof.

The most notable religious artwork is an enormous icon of the Risen Christ by Antonio Gioia Di Nola, which is six metres tall.
