History of the Church of San Marcuola of Venice
The facade, which is still incomplete, was designed by the architect G. Massari, who naturally planned to cover the entire surface in white marble.
The interior is of great austerity and is articulated on a single nave. The prespitery with a square plan houses the altar with the two eighteenth-century statues of Saints Fortunatus and Ermagoras – to whom the church is dedicated – attributed to G. M. Morleiter.
On the two side walls are placed two Tintoretto: The Last Supper, in the past mistakenly considered a copy, and The Washing of the Feet, which instead is a late copy of the same painting made for this church but later ended up in the Spanish royal collections.
