Conference Venue

Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista

The Conference will be held at the Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista, the second most ancient (1261) of the six “Scuole Grandi” still active in Venice before the Napoleonic suppression in 1806.
In medieval and Renaissance Venice, Catholic life was deeply influenced by confraternities named “Scuole” (Schools). Each “Scuola” (School) was a charitable association governed by elected lay officials. On the basis of the School Statute, the members were committed to mutual material and spiritual assistance and to works of Christian charity or piety.

The Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista was saved from destruction through the efforts of a dedicated group of Venetian citizens and in 1857 it served as the seat of the Society of Building Arts (Società per le Arti Edificatorie). In 1929 it became a confraternity and even now plays an important social and spiritual role in the city.
