Church of San Sebastiano: Save Venice’s Current Major Project
Paolo Veronese has never been seen to greater advantage than in the intimate church of San Sebastiano, which houses more important works by the great 16th-century painter in a single location than any other site in the world. Created between 1555 and 1570, Veronese’s creations include frescoes, wall paintings, altarpieces, canvases, and a painted wooden ceiling. Learn about Save Venice’s on-going campaign to restore Veronese’s decorative cycle.
