Confraternity of St. Roch, {CATEGORY}

This stunning building was built in the Renaissance, but displays traces of successive interventions up until the baroque period. Scuola Grande Arciconfraternita di San Rocco is often used as a concert hall, and is next to the San Rocco Church with which it is often mistaken. It is dedicated to Rocco, who cured the sick during the 14th-century plague. The interior decoration of the school was entrusted to Jacopo Tintoretto, whose works, such as the Allegories, Life and Passion of Christ, and episodes from the Old and New Testaments can be admired. Among the most famous displays are The Annuciation, The Epiphany, and The Flight to Egypt. It is open throughout the year except for a few occasions. However the open hours may vary according to the months, so visit the website for details.

Confraternity of St. Roch, {CATEGORY}

Jacopo Robusti (1518-94), called Tintoretto because his father was a dyer, was a devout, unworldly man who only traveled once beyond Venice. His epic canvases are filled with phantasmagoric light and intense, mystical spirituality. This museum is a dazzling monument to his work - it holds the largest collection of his images anywhere. The series of the more than 50 dark and dramatic works took the artist more than 20 years to complete, making this the richest of the many confraternity guilds or scuole that once flourished in Venice. Begin upstairs in the Sala dell'Albergo, where the most notable of the enormous, powerful canvases is the moving La Crocifissione (The Crucifixion). In the center of the gilt ceiling of the great hall, also upstairs, is Il Serpente di Bronzo (The Bronze Snake). Among the eight huge, sweeping paintings downstairs - each depicting a scene from the New Testament - La Strage degli Innocenti (The Slaughter of the Innocents) is the most noteworthy, so full of dramatic urgency and energy that the figures seem almost to tumble out of the frame. As you enter the room, it's on the opposite wall at the far end of the room. There's a useful guide to the paintings posted inside on the wall just before the entrance to the museum. There are a few Tiepolos among the paintings, as well as a solitary work by Titian. The works on or near the staircase are not by Tintoretto.
