History

This church was completed in the 16th century by the Gesuati order. In 1750, a larger Gesuati church was built in the city of Venice and this building was converted to a library. Napoleon suppressed the church in 1810, but it was reopened and restored to a church later in the 19th century. The convent was an orphanage until the 1980's when it was converted to student residences. The church is now a chapel for the Instituto Don Orione.
