Santa Rita da Cascia a Monte Mario is a modern parish church at Via Antonino Parato 5 at Monte Mario in the Delle Vittoria district, north of Torrevecchia.

The dedication is to St Rita of Cascia.

It was completed in 1981 as a simple small neo-Romaneque building in pink brick with white stone details, having a pitched roof and a small rectangular apse. It sits on an elevated plinth above street level, having an entrance without a porch but flanked by round pilasters with thin slab capitals and a triangular pediment containing a little bronze sculpture. A rectangular stone frame forming the corners of the façade and running horizontally below the gable creates a false pediment.
