Full Description

Shining with light the large canvases of Tintoretto, treasures of the great churches of Venice.

Among the calli of the city, the sumptuous facades and the precious interiors of the palaces and the imposing churches recall the time of the great commission of the Serenissima. This tour will tell you the story of Jacopo Tintoretto, the Rebel of Venice, the brilliant artist of Serenissima between sacred and profane. In the morning, the gold and light of the large canvas of the Madonna dell’Orto illuminate the new perspectives of Tintoretto’s art. In his first workshop, the works took shape on the requests of large clients including the School of the Blessed Sacrament, which in the Church of San Cassiano found the sacred treasure chest of the masterpieces of the Rebel. In Rialto’s stores, the young artist bought his colors and looked for new clients. Today, as then, the market area is one of the vibrant hearts of the city, among spice merchants from distant lands and fish delicacies of the lagoon. At the tolling of the bell tower of San Silvestro, Traditional dishes are served for the lavish lunch. In the afternoon, the visit begins with the entrance to the humble church of Santa Maria Mater Domini, inside which the large gold frame preserves the precious that tells with triumphant use of color the story of St. Helen liberating the Christian cult. Continuing through the calli, in the Sestriere of San Polo, the life of the Venetians is a praise to the slowness. Entering through the sacred door of the red brick church, the wooden ceiling leads to the priceless beauty of the Last Supper where shapes and colors shape the artist’s masterpiece. In the great Scuola di San Rocco, the walls are ecstatic for the eyes: the large rooms are the glorious and eternal legacy of the Rebel in the service of the historic brotherhood of the longest-lasting Venice.
