This church is also known as Sant' Isepo and was built in 1512 by the Venetian Senate in response to popular demand for a church dedicated to Joseph, father of Jesus. There is a wooden barco (singing gallery for the nuns). Much of the church was paid for by the Grimani family, and a Doge Grimani is buried here along with his family. This family also commissioned the “Adoration of the Magi” relief on the façade of the church above the door. The church has an impressive frescoed trompe l’oeil ceiling showing “The Glory of St. Joseph" - it's a flat ceiling painted with columns and architectural features to make it look domed. The 2 most important paintings are Veronese’s “Adoration of the Shepherds” and Tintoretto’s “Archangel Michael Overcoming Lucifer in the Presence of a Venetian Senator.” Chorus Church Pass.
