History

Santa Maria Formosa was the first church in the city of Venice to be dedicated to the Virgin Mary in the 7th century. The church was rebuilt twice, once in the 11th century and again in the 15th century. Santa Maria Formosa has two facades, one facing the campo and another facing the canal, that were begun in the mid-16th century. The façades were not completed until the 1990s when Venice in Peril renovated both the interior and exterior.
