Work Description

The crucifix, well visible from afar, hangs over the entrance of the choir. Traditionally, there was a Calvary hanging above the choir screen: in fact, beside the Crucifix, there are the sculptures, made with Istrian marble, of the Madonna and Saint John the Evangelist. Recent studies attribute this work to a Venetian craftsman. It is very likely that – thanks to his beauty and relevance – this crucifix was taken as a pattern for many others in Venezia and the Veneto region.
