History

The scuola was founded by Dalmatian immigrants called Schiavoni in the 15th century. The scuola received a relic of Saint Matthew at the beginning of the 16th century. After they received this, the order was inspired to restore the church and add commission to several paintings for the interior of the scuola. The scuola is still standing today and the paintings are still visible in both the lower and upper halls.
