Façade of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco

Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Venice

For over twenty years from 1565, Tintoretto lavished his creative energy on the interior of the Scuola Grande di SanRocco, with a series of paintings that reveal his transition from a descriptive and realistic style to one of visionary spirituality.

The façade of the Scuola was designed by Bartolomeo Bon and Antonio Abbondi (called Scarpignino).

We recommend to take a virtual tour in the Scuola Grande di San Rocco starting from the homepage of the Scuola.
