Santi Martiri di Selva Candida is at Via dei Santi Martiri di Selva Candida 7, in the suburb of Selva Candida west of the Circonvallazione Settentrionale.
This church is in the municipality of Rome, but belongs to the diocese of Porto Santa Rufina.
It is the church of the parish of Natività di Maria Santissima, which has a different dedication to the Birthday of Our Lady. The Santi Martiri are SS Rufina and Seconda, who by tradition were martyred in the locality.
It was completed in 2006 to a very unusual plan post-modern plan. The front elevation and the left hand wall meet at an acute angle, and are joined by a long curving arc which forms the right hand wall and the back. The church is part of a quadrangle of ancillary buildings, mostly in white with small square windows and internal arcades. There is a prominent campanile in grey, formed of three huge vertical vanes joined at angles of sixty degrees to each other.
There is a set of photos on the parish website.
