San Francesco della Vigna

Campo San Francesco della Vigna, Venice, Italy (Castello) Phone: 041 5206102


San Francesco della Vigna  is a  Roman Catholic  church in the  Sestiere  of  Castello  in  Venice , northern  Italy . The church was designed in  Renaissance  style by  Jacopo Sansovino , with the advice of the Franciscan friar, Fra Francesco  Zorzi . Fra Zorzi based the sizing of the various elements on the number three, because of its association with the  Trinity. Two main impulses led to the reconstruction of this church; one was the reform sweeping the order of the Franciscan Observants, and the other was the wishes of Doge  Andrea Gritti , whose family palace neighbored the church. In 1534, this Doge laid the foundation stone for the new church
