Chiesa Santa Fosca Vergine

Church of Santa Fosca Vergine - Venezia

Cannaregio 1762 - Campo Santa Fosca
30121 Venezia VE

Documents attest to a church of this name dating to the 10th century. The present building dates to reconstructions beginning in the 18th century. The facade (1733-1741), designed by Domenico Rossi, was built with the patronage of the patrician Donà family, who once occupied the adjacent Palazzo Giovanelli.

The interior has a Trinity and the Virgin by Filippo Bianchi; while the Life of Santa Fosca altarpieces were painted by Francesco Migliori. This church should be distinguished from the older small church of Santa Fosca, Torcello, attached to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta.

Opening times:
Sunday from 9.30am to 11.00am
