It's spectacular. The decorative oil paintings inside are very beautiful. All kinds of paintings deserve to be appreciated. There are Old Testament stories engraved here, and the carvings are very delicate. It's a good choice to spend some time walking here. It's good to slip in the garden.
Tintoretto designed the majority of this beautiful scuola, even sneaking in one night to paint an entire mural in order to win a competition. Filled with dark wood, red velvet, and gold trim, the dark interior is a classic example of the Venetian chiaroscuro technique.
The Scuola di San Rocco was established in 1478 by a group of wealthy Venetian citizens, next to the church of San Rocco, from which it takes its name. Around 1570 Tintoretto was commissioned to paint the Scuola: you could find here really astonishing masterpieces.
St. Rock Hall is far from the main tourist area of St. Mark's Square. The front of the building is beautiful, but there are sixty works of art inside. The walls and ceilings are everywhere. St. Rock is the patron saint of plague victims. There are beautiful carved dark wooden chairs and big red lanterns in the hall.
One of the Venetian schools with a gorgeous facade. Quote lovely to behold!
Scuola Grande di San Rocco was founded as a charitable organization for the sick. It was built between 1515 and 1549 in honour of San Roco who was the patron saint of contagious diseases. Many people believed that by donating money to build the Scuola di San Rocco they would be spared from the plague. Tintoretto was commissioned to decorate the walls and the ceilings in 1564 and he did a remarkable job. The cycle of paintings in Sala dell’Albergo, the Upper Hall and the Ground Hall are all masterpieces by him. The interior wall and ceiling frescoes are absolutely beautiful.
Not to be missed, restored in 2012.
