|Address:||Via Lino Liviabella 70|
San Tommaso Apostolo ad Infernetto is a modern parish church at Via Lino Liviabella 70 in the Infernetto district, east of Lido di Ostia.
The dedication is to St Thomas the Apostle.
The present building is a temporary structure, and the construction of a new permanent church was approved in 2008. However, some inhabitants of the suburb, which is quite high-class despite its name of “Little Hell”, wished to have the site used for a school instead. This delayed the laying of the first stone until 2010, and this will be Rome's newest church when it is finished. The architect is Marco Petreschi.
The old church was erected in 1954. It is a simple rectangular edifice, painted white, with a slab-like false façade having a gable and a floating canopy across the entire width above the entrance, made up of five low arches. Above this is a mural showing the face of Christ. The actual church is much lower than the height of the gable.
