The Scuola Grande of San Rocco is the oldest building in the Capo San Rocco district of Venice. In Venice the associations that helped the poor were called “scuole”. There are seven “scuole grandi” in Venice: San Giovanni Evangelista, San Marco, San Teodoro, dei Carmini, della Carità, della Misericordia and San Rocco.
The Scuola Grande of San Rocco is one of the most beautiful. It was built in 1478 with the goal of helping the local population and promoting the works of art made by its members. The building, as we know it today, was designed in 1517 and assigned to Pietro Bon. The works were not finished until 1550.
