Santa Rita da Cascia a Casalotti is a modern parish church at Vicolo Casalotti 3, in the suburb and district of Casalotti. It is south of the Via di Boccea and west of the Circonvallazione Settentrionale.

It was built in the 20th century, and is a striking building constructed with large bricks and square pale green stones arranged in a horizontally striped pattern. The plan is octagonal, and the main body of the church forms a tall Greek cross with diagonal walls in three interior corners containing side entrances. The main entrance occupies the fourth corner, and has a projecting enclosed entrance hall. There is a low and broad octagonal lantern over the crossing, and a tall campanile with an open pyramidal top stage.
