|English name:||St Linus|
|Address:||Via Cardenale Garampi 60|
San Lino is a modern parish and titular church with a postal address at Via Cardinale Garampi 60, in Primavalle just west of Via della Pineta Sacchetti. The main entrance is off the latter road.
It was completed in 1999, to a strikingly unusual design. The plan is irregular, being based on an irregular pentagon with two walls meeting at an oblique angle forming the entrance frontage. Threre is a short transverse wall beind the altar, a straight wall to the right of this and a vertically stepped wall to the left. The roof is pitched, hipped at the altar wall and raised at the entrance angle to form two steeper pitches that extend as a canopy.
The façade is dominated by the enormous entrance canopy formed by this extension of the roof. It has the profile of a truncated triangle, and is supported by a round concrete pillar either side of the entrance. Above the door a dedicatory inscription in Latin runs the length of the buff brick façade, referring to the patron saint being the successor of St Peter as Pope. Above the entrance are two stained glass windows together forming an arrow pointing upwards, with the window forming the arrowhead tucked into the underside of the canopy. The yellow brickwork is embellished by four pairs of empty rectangular outlines in red brick, two either side of the door and two either side of the window forming the arrow shaft. The inner ones are doubled, one inside the other. The top outer ones are stepped under the canopy slope.
The tall campanile to the right side has red brick panels in a frame of stacked white concrete cuboids, and is crowned with four truncated triangles mirroring the entrance canopy and finally a pyramidion finial.
