The “Scuola Grande di San Marco”, founded in 1260, is one of the most important places in Venice.
It is located in a picturesque setting in the heart of the city center, close to San Marco square and other important attractions in town.
After a big fire in 1485, it has been reconstructed by some of the most famous architects of the period: Pietro Lombardo, Mauro Codussi and Antonio Rizzo.
Nowadays the School is mostly used for important conferences, congresses, concerts, and exposures, which usually take place in the biggest rooms, such as the “Sala degli Angeli”.
After the new inauguration in 2013, the Organisation of the Scuola Grande has decided to open a part of the Palace to the public as a museum.
