  • To complete the visit to the Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista, simply open the adjoining Church, sober in its ancient charm and embellished with paintings of any interest, including a crucifixion by Domenico Tintoretto.

  • This church, located in front of the Scuola San Giovanni Evangelista, underwent several restorations over the centuries. The Interior, with a single nave, presents some remarkable works: "The last supper" of Jacopo MARIESCHI, "The coronation of the Virgin with Angels musicians" of Andrea VICENTINO and the spectacular "martyrdom of St. John the Evangelist" of Gherardo ZAMPINI (in a Chapel to the right of the choir). A false contre-facade houses an organ of PIAGGIA box, to the left, by the "martyrdom of St. Barbara" Pietro RICCHI and, right, by Francesco MONTEMEZZO the "martyrdom of saint Sebastian". A little-known, little-used Church but who however worth a visit carefully before going to the school (or after).
