CHURCH OF S. ROCCO - Sestiere of San Polo, XV sec. -

San Rocco church was begun in 1489 on a Bon's project and consectraded in 1508. This church suffered a big restoration in eighteenth century by Scalfarotto that almost canceled the entire original building.
Facade was built from 1765 to 1771 on Fossati's project and appears nowadays in keeping with the Renaissance architecture of the adjoining Scuola Grande. Almost all the estatues on the facade are by sculptor G. Marchiori.
Interior, with one nave with flat ceiling, reveals its Renaissance origin, in spite of Scalfarotto's interventions.
As for the Scuola Grande Jacopo Tintoretto worked here painting the organ's doors representing 'Annunciazione and San Rocco presentato al papa.
