San Michele Arcangelo a Giardini di Corcolle is a modern parish church in Via Monteprandone 67 in the suburb of Giardini di Corcolle, in the district of San Vittorino. This is just south-west of the junction between the Strada dei Parchi and the Autostrada del Sole. Pictures of the church on Wikimedia Commons [1]

This church is in the municipality of Rome, but belongs to the diocese of Tivoli.

It was completed in 1997. The unusual post-modern design is a fairly low square white box, with a higher vertical cuboid, also pure white, inserted into one corner where the entrance is. This latter form has two large vertical vanes bounding a central vertical strip containing four rows of vertically rectangular windows, three in each. The first three are cantilevered one above the other, but the highest slopes back. There is a detached campanile consisting of two parallel thin concrete strips, connected with thin metal rungs like a ladder, with a horizontal cap and an exposed bell.
