Marriage of Sts Mary and Joseph

Basilica dei Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Venice

The Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary was destroyed by fire in 1867. The restored chapel was reopened only in 1959. The dado round the sanctuary of the chapel are now decorated with 18th-century low-reliefs partly recomposed after the fire. Giuseppe Torretti's low-relief is part of this decoration.
