  • A visit to the Church of Sant’Alvise and the nearby church of Madonna dell’Orto takes you through the most secret and authentic corners of Venice in one of the remotest parts of Cannaregio, steeped in the silence of the lagoon and on regular lots of reclaimed land.

    Originally a convent church, Sant’Alvise was, according to tradition, commissioned by Venetian noblewoman Antonia Venier in 1388, in honour of St. Louis of Toulouse who had appeared to her in a dream. The present form of the church is the result of a reconstruction completed in the XVIIth century.

    The daring perspective of the ceiling frescoes painted in that century by Antonio Torri and Pietro Ricchi is still spectacularly effective. The remarkable works of art conserved in the church of Sant’Alvise include the extraordinary “Christ Carrying the Cross” – a late masterpiece by Giambattista Tiepolo, who painted two other works still conserved in this church, “The Coronation of Thorns” and the “Flagellation” (1737-40).
