Church of Santa Maria Assunta o dei Gesuiti

Church of Santa Maria Assunta o dei Gesuiti A splendid example of Baroque Jesuit architecture with its majestic facade populated with statues and lavishly decorated inside.

The original 12th century church belonged to the Crociferi order and was bought by the Jesuits in 1657. 
They rebuilt the church between 1715 and 1730 with a Baroque façade and decorated with flowing figures reminiscent of Fattoretto’s Roman models. 
These were paid for by the Manin family.  In the opulent interior there is a work, found in the left hand altar, by Tiziano (1558), St Lorenzo’s Martyrdom.
