San Nicolò Mendicoli Church

In this chapter we discuss a very special, unique and incredible building, located in the Dorsoduro District, the San Nicolò Mendicoli Church.

The San Nicolò Mendicoli Church, founded in the twelfth century, is one of the oldest churches in Venezia and can be seen from its simple thirteenth-century lines and delicate proportions; it is loved and remembered above all for the disorder of works and art objects of every age. The interior is very rich, especially the central nave, with 16th century gilded wooden statues. Between the upper walls there is a series of paintings on the life of Christ by Alvise dal Friso and other Veronese students. The interior was subjected to one of the most complete restorations in the seventies.
