Santa Fosca is a church in the sestiere of Cannaregio of Venezia, Italy. Adjacent to the Strada Nova, it faces the campo of Santa Fosca. On this campo stands the monument with a bronze statue of Paolo Sarpi. Documents attest to a church of this name dating to the 10th century. The present building dates to reconstructions beginning in the 18th century. The facade (1733-1741), designed by Domenico Rossi, was built with the patronage of the patrician Donà family. That family once occupied the adjacent Palazzo Giovanelli. The church now belongs to the parish of San Marcuola. The interior has a Trinity and the Virgin by Filippo Bianchi; while the Life of Santa Fosca altarpieces were painted by Francesco Migliori. This church should be distinguished from the older small church of Santa Fosca, Torcello, attached to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta.

  • Nice little church

  • Lovely building

  • Situada en el Campo Santa Fosca, junto a la Strada Nova, la calle más populosa de Venecia, encontramos esta iglesia fundada en el siglo X y que ha sido sometida durante su historia a diferentes reconstrucciones, siendo su aspecto actual el resultado de la última intervención, entre 1733 y 1741. Su exterior no presenta ningún elemento de interés, y en cuanto a su interior, es muy simple: una sola nave con cuatro altares y coro y obras de autores menores de los siglos XVII y XVIII. Si a ello unimos que habitualmente está cerrada (aparentemente la única forma de visitarla es durante la misa diaria, que comienza a las 10.15 horas), comprenderemos que no presenta demasiado interés. Como curiosidad, en el Campo Santa Fosca encontramos el puente del mismo nombre, que cruza Fondamenta de Ca Vendramin, y tiene la particularidad de que se encuentran grabadas las huellas de los pies, igual que ocurre en el archiconocido Ponte dei PugnI; sin embargo, aquí podemos hacernos las fotos que queramos con toda la tranquilidad del mundo.
