Santa Maria Regina Mundi a Torre Spaccata is a modern parish and titular church at Via Alessandro Barbosi 6, in the suburb of Torre Spaccata which is in the Don Bosco district, south of the Via Casilina and west of the Circonvallazione Orientale.
The church was designed by Eugenio Montuori and Giuseppe Nicolosi, and opened in 1970. It presents a triangular profile at its entrance, with blank concrete walls which have a slightly earthy shade.
The narrow façade has a plain cross in pale blue glass, and above this is a large window set into the gabled roofline. The side walls of the frontage are angled to the entrance wall so as to present the profile, and the other end of the church has the same shape. Thus, the plan is of a stretched hexagon. There is a hint of a low square dome, and a detached campanile formed out of a thin rectangular concrete pillar with rectangular piercings on one side.
The interior has a nave with side aisles. There are frescoes by Benedetto de Santis of New Testament events, and he also designed the two flanking windows in the sanctuary.
The central window, designed by Laura Giuliana Redini and installed in 1972, shows the Madonna, Queen of Creation and Child being venerated by the prophet Elijah and Bl Simon Stock. The former is venerated by the Carmelites as their spiritual founder, and the latter was an early superior of the Order who died in 1265 (and who is often referred to as a saint, although the Roman Martyrology only lists him as a beatus).
