|San Giovanni Leonardi|
|English name:||St John Leonardi|
|Address:||Via della Cicogna 2|
San Giovanni Leonardi is a modern parish church at Via della Cicogna 2, in the suburb of Torre Maura which is to the south-west of the junction between the Via Casilina and the Circonvallazione Orientale.
The parish is administered by the Clerks Regular of the Mother of God, whose founder the patron saint John Leonardi was. He is enshrined at Santa Maria in Campitelli, where the congregation has its headquarters.
The church was designed by Tullio Rossi and finally completed in 1991, some time after the parish was founded in 1951. By then, the architect was aged eighty-nine. It is a rectangular bulding with an attached rectangular apse of less height, both units having pitched roofs. The apse one is also hipped. There is a nave with narrow aisles. The simple gabled façade is rendered in a pale and dull pink, with an external porch with a gable matching the main one above and an open archway for an entrance. The corners of this, the aisles and also the vertical edges of the main nave are tricked out in white .There is a circular recessed window with a white frame above the porch. Three thin white decorative strips climb from the top of this window and the outer corners of the porch to the gabled roofline.
The side walls are of red brick, as is a small campanile attached to the far right hand corner. This has arched sound-holes, and a saddleback gabled cap. On the left hand side is the convent, with a rectangular cloister next to the left aisle.
