The interior

The three naves are the result of the reconstruction action at the end of the 1600s. The church has eight altars. The majoraltar is in Baroque style and can be attributed to the Marinali school (XVII century). It was once embellished, according to Giovanni Battista Verci, by a painting by Alessandro Maganza, currently replaced by a copy of the upper part of Tiziano’s Assunta, a work of the painter Giuseppe Fortunato Centazzo (XIX century). On both sides of the choir, worth of notice are the two canvases by Andrea Celesti (Venice 1637- Toscolano 1712) depicting The Appearance of the Eternal God before King David and Melchizedek’s Sacrifice. The frontals of the altars of Our Lady of Sorrow and of Our Lady of Lourdes are also of high quality and wonderfully made. The canvases in the three compartments of the ceiling are attributable to Bartolomeo Dusi (1833-1904) who is also the author of the Transfiguration on the vault of the
choir. The canvas depicting Christ in the garden is a work by Pietro Menegatti (1809-1848) and the Baptism of Christ was painted by friar Felice Cignaroli. Of particular interest, located in the northern wall of the left-side nave, is a relief in marble depicting the Madonna with the Christ Child from the Sansovino school, a votive offering donated by Prospero Alpini (1553-1616) as a sign of gratitude for his return from the journey to Egypt.
