Scuola Grande di San Rocco
The monumental building, seat of the Arch-Confraternity of San Rocco, was constructed between 1517 and 1560 on the designs of Bartolomeo Bon, but was completed only later by Sante Lombardo and Antonio Scarpagnino; on the façade, elements of the early Renaissance on the ground floor blend with precursors to the Baroque period on the upper floor. Inside, the expansive rooms are decorated by the entire cycle of great canvases by Jacopo Tintoretto, painted between 1564 and 1587, which mark the peak of his artistic career. The Scuola Grande di San Rocco also holds concerts. On 16 August the Scuola is open free of charge from 9 am to 5:30 pm in celebration of the feast day of St. Roch.
