  • This beautiful building, erected on the banks of the Rio dell' Anzolo Rafael, has a façade decorated, above the portal, with a sculpture depicting The Angel Raphael accompanied by Tobie and his dog. The interior is very interesting to visit with its remarkable ceiling decorated with a fresco (work of Francesco FONTEBASSO), inserted in a beautiful carved cornice, representing "Saint Michel chasing Lucifer". The organ presents a parapet decorated with 5 beautiful paintings by Gianantonio GUARDI illustrating the history of Tobie. On each side of this organ are two beautiful paintings representing "The Last Supper", one by Bonifacio de PITATI, the other by Alvise DA FRISO. In the left nave stands an imposing altar, framed by red marble columns, with the statues of Angel Raphael and Tobie in the centre. To the left of the central nave is a beautiful wooden pulpit decorated with beautiful sculptures. This church is absolutely worth a thorough visit. Questa chiesa presenta opere bellissime: - il soffito ornato dall' affresco "San Michele caccia Lucifer" dipinto da Francesco FONTEBASSO - l'organo e la sua cantoria ornata di scene dipinte da Gianantonio GUARDI - a favolosoe altar dedicato all' Angelo Raffaele - a polpito in legno ornato da bellissime sculture. Una bellissima chiesa da visitare assolutamente!

  • This church is said to have been founded in the 7th century, but it was rebuilt several times and rebuilt in 1618, with a façade of 1735.It is located away from the tourist circuits west of the Dorsoduro and therefore quiet. We have been able to contemplate many works, including in particular five panels depicting episodes of Tobie's life (associated with the Archangel Raphael who healed through him the blindness of his father Tobit). They were made around 1749 by one of the greatest representatives of the Venetian rococo: Giannantonio Guardi, brother of Francesco. A small guide in French is freely available.
