Façade of the Scuola Grande di San Rocco1516-49
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.
