Church of St Giovanni Elemosinario
This church, one of the lesser known in Venice, was closed for restoration work for 20 years and opened in 2002. It can be found in the Rialto market area and is a beautiful example of Renaissance architecture. It was rebuilt in 1538 and has a bell tower dating from the end of the 1300s.
It was reinstalled in the church from the Gallerie dell’Accademia, after the 20 year restoration. Pordenone is also the author of the fresco in the cupola which underwent restoration and can now be seen for the first time..
