Isola di San Michele, Venice

Two pilasters divide the façade of the church into three sections that correspond to its internal layout of a nave and two aisles. The curve of the rounded pediment that surmounts the face is repeated in the seashell decorations of the two demi-lunettes. The round window in the middle is surrounded by four polychrome marble roundels. The lower part of the façade is faced with smooth stonework.
