4.1
San Giovanni Elemosinario is a church of Venice, northern Italy, dedicated to Saint John the Almsgiver.This church was founded in 1071, and was completely destroyed by the disastrous Rialto fire in 1514. The church was rebuilt by Antonio Abbondi called Scarpagnino. The painter Antonio Vassilacchi worked here in the 16th century. Nestled into the dense area near the Rialto Market (with your back to the Bridge on the San Polo side, turn left just past the flea market booths; the entrance will be through the frescoed arch behind iron gates on your left).The altarpiece on the high altar depicts St. John the Almsgiver (1545-1550) by Titian; the right apse chapel houses Saints Catherine, Sebastian and Roch (c. 1533) by il Pordenone.

  • church in the rear of it towards the Rialto Bridge. Because there is no church likeness, it seems to pass if it does not look carefully. The picture of the angel drawn on the ceiling is characteristic.

  • In the market area in Rialto in Venice, on the remains of a church built around the year 1000, shortly after 1500 the Church of St. John Elomosinario in the Renaissance style is rebuilt. The church is not easy to identify because it is enclosed between dwellings, it houses numerous valuable artistic works, including a canvas of Tintoretto, a shovel at the main altar of Titian.

  • The location is in the shopping street of Rialto is difficult to understand the entrance, but I finally put in the day to return home because it seems close early in the evening, just doing a mass on Sunday, Titian "San Giovanni Eleemo Scenario" Could not be seen near. The entrance is just around the left where the arcade from the bridge is broken.

  • Small church full of charm, somewhat hidden in these alleys very commercial and tourist. We must stop there if only to contemplate St. John the charitable titian and the 3 sts of Pordenone with the body of Sebastian who marries the brood of the painting and the gigantic St Roch who listens with great seriousness and tenderness the angel
