For the very rich congregation of the Benedictines of Venice I first created a succession of portals and huge barrel-vaulted spaces, in a grandiose path like the ancient thermal buildings of Rome: it was my refectory that was accomplished in the sumptuous Canaan Wedding of my friend Paolo Veronese , which pierced the fifth, continuing my architecture on canvas.
A few years later, even leaving a drawing for the cloister, I was in charge of the large church of the convent: in front of Piazza San Marco, the Bucintoro and all the ships of Venice would leave and return greeting the white facade reflected on the lagoon. .
