Ciao Venezia: cultural guide of Venice. The history, the art, the events.

The right aisle

On the right aisle, starting from the back you will surely notice a dark wooden chest placed high above the door of the cloister.
According to a legend it should contain the mortal remains of the Count of Carmagnola, beheaded for high treason to the Serenissima Repubblica in 1432, but actually it is the resting place of the Abbot Luigi Dalla Torre, killed in 1549 by Tristano Savorgnan. Facing the wall against the choir is a 17th century carved chest once belonging to the School of St. Francis, and above are worth admiring four paintings by Andrea Vicentino ( 16th century ), depicting The Creation, Moses in the desert raising up the bronze serpent, The Last Judgement and The Glory of Paradise.
Moving forward we meet the Altar of St. Catherine of Alexandria.
The Altar of the Presentation is so called for the painting of the presentation of the Baby Jesus in the Temple ( 1548 ), signed by the Roman artist Giuseppe Porta alias Salviati.
The work measures 4.83 per 2.47 metres and shows an excellent pictorial technique.

Past the altar we face the artistic tribute to the great Master Tiziano Vecellio.
The last fine altar worth seeing is St.Anthony's, built in 1663 by the homonymous brotherhood and designed by Baldassarre Longhena.
At the foot of the altar next to the pillar is a beautiful holy water stoup with a statuette of St. Agnes that may be a work by Girolamo Campagna ( 1592 ), similar to the one placed near the last pillar of the left aisle.
