About San Giorgio degli Schiavoni
San Giorgio degli Schiavoni was a school opened in 1451 by the wealthy Dalmatian Schiavoni community.
San Giorgio degli Schiavoni now displays important pieces of Venetian art, as painted by the Dalmatian Vittore Carpaccio from 1502 to 1509. Many of these paintings depict Dalmatian patron saints as well as a magnificent pictorial of St George fighting a dragon.
Beautiful and evocative, this is a popular tourist attraction and an important building in Venetian history. The school or “scuola” was closed down by Napoleon, but reopened at a later date.
