History of the Church of San Giobbe of Venice
The large church dates back to the fourteenth century, but the main building imprint was printed in the middle of the fourteenth century on a design by Antonio Gambello first and then by Pietro Lombardo.
The elegant portal, the work of the Lombardo, is one of the testimonies of the formidable decorative capacity of the Venetian Renaissance.
The interior is organized on a single imposing nave, while the ceiling, once supported by wooden trusses, now appears with cross vaults.
Many painting masterpieces of the sixteenth century are now preserved in the Gallerie dell’Accademia: The Presentation of Jesus in the Temple (1510) by Carpaccio, Christ in the Garden (1510 c. ) by Marco Basaiti, The Virgin on the Throne with Musical Angels by Giovanni Bellini. However, in the church are the Nativity scene (1540 c.) by Savoldo, the altarpiece with Saints Peter, Andrew and Nicholas by Paris Bordon or the triptych with Annunciation, Sant’Antonio da Padua and San Michele (1445 c. ) by Antonio Vivarini, the latter preserved in the sacristy.
