Author: Paolo Caliari known as Veronese
DATE: 1558 POSITION: left wall METHOD: fresco
During the Spring of 1558, Veronese started the decoaration of the church: the work proceeded very quickly and the setup of the frescos was complete in September of the same year.
On the higher part of the walls a continuous decoration runs along the portico and winds around the spiral columns, interrupted only for the presbytery arch.
Going towards the opposite side of the façade, near the monks barco, the colonnade houses the Stories of Saint Sebastian. On the right wall, between two spiral columns, the figure of Saint Sebastian stabbed by arrows is placed, corresponding to to the group of Three Archers placed on the opposite side of the nave. This masterly invented scene, a typical work of Paolo Veronese, creates a link between the virtual space in the fresco, in which the events of the saint's life are carried out, and the realistic space of the church named after him.
