The Scuola Grande di San Rocco is a striking 16th century building, which houses a unique and incredibly impressive museum. The Scuola is a rather small building, but an absolute must visit for art lovers and worthy of almost any walk. It should move above many other Venetian sites in terms of visitor priority and you should definitely make the time to stop in here. Scuola is a Greek word that means an organization dedicated to prayer, assistance, and/or education. This religious confraternity, founded in 1478 to perform charitable acts, is dedicated to St. Roch, the patron saint of the sick. The Scuola is one of the most important treasure chests of Venetian paintings, a virtual shrine to the followers of Jacopo Tintoretto, and a dazzling monument to his work. It holds the largest collection of Tintoretto’s paintings anywhere with the walls and ceilings of the Great Upper Hall completely covered with his canvasses. Great Discoveries audio tour guides visitors through this wondrously unique building, pointing out and describing its most important artworks.
