Notes NOTES: This drawing was made either by Visentini or one of his assistants. The church was begun in 1506 to designs by Scarpagnino and finised around 1524. The monument to Paolo Paruta, an historian of the Venetian Republic, is said to be by Longhena and covers the inside of the entrance wall of the church.
