Chiesa di San Stae

It is also called San Eustachio. A dozen designs were presented, and in the end that by Domenico Rossi was chosen. The facade by Domenico Rossi (1709) and the interior by Giovanni Grassi (begun in 1678) show neo-palladian classical influences, notwithstanding the agitated movement of the marble group on the facade, and recall the late Baroque, the period of the doge Alvise Mocenigo. Inside are exhibited precious canvasses by some of the most important painters working in Venice at the beginning of the 1700s, notably Piazzetta, GB. Tiepolo and Sebastiano Ricci.
