1111Scala Contarini del Bovolo - Crociferi Oratory: Jacopo Palma il Giovane
The Crociferi Oratory is a chapel entirely painted by Jacopo Palma Il Giovane at the end of the XVI centrury. It lies next to a fiftennth-century building which was used as an hospice. Its interior paintings differ from the official refined painting: here, Palma offers a true record of the characters that have written the history of the Crociferi order, showing direct knowledge of some of the protagonists of the canvasses. It is an intimate place, a unique example of the production of this great artist.
