  • In the popular Campiello di San Canciano is the church that bears his name. The foundation is not certain, it is believed to be in the NINTH century. It is dedicated to the three Roman martyrs: Canziano, Canzio and Canzianilla. Over time it has been the subject of numerous restorations, about half of the 1500 was demolished and rebuilt according to Renaissance forms. The façade, which remained unfinished, was built towards 1750 at the hands of Antonio Gaspari. The interior maintains the basilical layout with three naves, with vaulted ceiling supported by round arches and Corinthian columns. On the walls of the ample presbytery there are two paintings by Domenico Zanchi: the probative swimming pool and the multiplication of loaves and fishes. The presbytery is flanked by two chapels; The right one, belonging to the Widmann family, is rich in marble and stucco and presents sculptures by Clemente Moli.
