Chiesa Zaninova, Castello

With an unfinished facade that is reminiscent of San Lorenzo, the deconsecrated Chiesa di S. Giovanni Novo (Zaninova) is tucked away just off the Calle Sacrestia.

  1. I need to get a historian on board here, I think.

    I think it could be San Marco, as many well-heads have initials of the scuole – such as SR for San Rocco and SMV for Santa Maria Valverde.

    So it is! It’s quite hard to see. What can you tell us about the MS (or SM) on the well-head?

    Where was the last photo taken? It’s not the door of the church.
