San Giorgio degli Schiavoni

Retains some of the most beautiful works of Vittore Carpaccio, commissioned from community degli Schiavoni (Dalmatian) of Venice, when he was at the peak of her career. The school dates back to 1451; it was rebuilt in 1551 and since then has changed very little. Carpaccio there flew nine tele between 1502 and 1508, with scenes from the lives of the three patron saints of Dalmatia: San Giorgio, St Triphon and San Girolamo. Each episode of the narrative cycle is notable for bright colors and details of painstaking and the historical testimony of Venetian life. Excel between all Saint George and the dragon, San Girolamo that leads in the monastery the lion and the vision of Saint Augustine.
