Scuola Grande dei Carmini
The Scuola Grande dei Carmini is one of the eight Venitian Great Schools and it’s placed in the sestiere of Dorsoduro.
Nearby Campo Santa Margherita, the School is divided into two floors adorned with wonderful wooden works and amazing ceilings decorated with stuccos and canvas. The ground floor hosts the Cappella, a picturesque space with monochrome paintings and a precious altar. A marvelous golden double Baroque stairway leads to the Sala Capitolare, the exact projection of the Chapel below: the evocative ceiling garnished with Tiepolo’s artworks, the wooden coverings and the sculptural altar make the room a prestigious scenery for the most elegant occasions. The Archivio and Albergo rooms recall the seventeenth century with their adorned ceilings, painted walls a marvelous inlaid marble floors.
