Scalzi Church - Chiesa di Santa Maria di Nazareth, Venice: 12 reviews and 25 photos
A 17th century church, la Chiesa di Santa Maria di Nazareth was built by the barefooted Carmelite friars (i frati Carmelitani Scalzi). As a result, it became known as la Chiesa degli Scalzi (the church of the barefooted). It was designed in 1654 by Baldassare Longhena, known for his Baroque work, and consecrated in 1705. The white marble Baroque façade and its beautiful sculptures, however, were designed by Giuseppe Sardi and completed in 1680. The interior once contained frescoes by Tiepolo, which were damaged during WWI.
