Founded in 1478 by benevolent Venetians as a Catholic Confraternity, la Scuola Grande di San Rocco takes its name from the neighbouring Chiesa di San Rocco. The actual building was commissioned in the 16th century and built in a Renaissance style with an intricately decorated, polychrome marble fašade. The design was the work of several architects, including Bartolomeo Bon, who also worked on la Chiesa di San Rocco. The famous Venetian artist, Jacopo Tintoretto was assigned the work of decorating its sumptuous interior. Nowadays, la Scuola Grande di San Rocco is a museum containing masterpieces by the same artist Jacopo Tintoretto.
