History of the Church of Gesuiti of Venice

Originally it belonged to the crociferi and only from 1657 it passed into the hands of the Jesuits who radically changed its aspect.

The façade – designed by G. B. Fattoretto – represents an example of Venetian Baroque of the early eighteenth century and the whole apparatus is obviously surmounted by a Virgin Assumption by Giuseppe Torretto.

The interior decoration in a fake brocade, actually made with marble inlays, is the real scenographic effect of the church which is famous for the many paintings by Jacopo Palma the Younger kept in the sacristy and for a masterpiece by the last Tiziano, The Martyrdom of San Lorenzo (1558) on the first altar on the left, which reveals a Titian already at the turning point for the the way he experiences with the nocturnal scene.
