The façade of the Church of San Zaccaria is an ideal mix of Gothic and Renaissance elements. It reveals aspects of flamboyant Gothic as it interacts with the newer style of the Classical Renaissance. Originally constructed in the 9th century, the church underwent a major rebuilding between 1444 and 1515. Antonio Gambello began the façade of the building in the Gothic style. He died and the work was taken up by Mauro Coducci. Coducci introduced elements of the newer architectural design. You can see his influence specifically on the upper section. Gambello favored marble while Coducci preferred white Istrian stone. There are Gothic aspects in the midst of the clean lines. In the interior, the two styles again mingle. There are Gothic apses but a high cross vaulting.
You also will be able to see the crypt containing the relics of 8 of Venice’s doges. The highlight of the church, however, is The Madonna and Child with Saints (1505) in the north aisle. It is by Giovanni Bellini. There are also vault frescoes by Andrea del Castagno and Gothic polyptychs by Antonio Vivarini and Giovanni d’Alemagna. Make time to see the works by Tintorreto and Tiepolo. It may be necessary to spend more time to truly appreciate this and other offerings.
