Architectural gem in posh Parioli...

If a Roman tells you they live in "Parioli" you're supposed to get excited as that's the zone where very wealthy persons live in nice Fascista era flats with big gardens.
This is the parish that was built for them by the Vicariat. As wierd as it looks, it's one of the most interesting in the whole of Rome. It's just down the street from Opus Dei headquarters (Santa Maria della Pace) and it's called the Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
