Notes NOTES: This drawing was made either by Visentini or one of his assistants. The church was consecrated in 1430. This drawing omits all the sculpture and the tombs, just showing the architectural framework. To the left is the tomb of Doge Pietro Mocenigo (d. 1476) by Pietro Lombardo; to the right, the tomb of Doge Giovanni Mocenigo (d. 1485) by Tullio Lombardo; and, in the centre, the tomb of Doge Alvise I Mocenigo (d. 1577) by Giovanni Grapiglia which was not completed until the mid-17th century.
