Venice's best known scuola grande—the scuole were religious charitable organizations, though run by the clergy—San Rocco's 16th-century building was decorated almost entirely by Tintoretto, who painted works of art for both floors of the huge building, helped only by his aides. The vast sala superiore (top floor hall), with artworks covering almost all the wall and ceiling space, is one of the most incredible sights in Venice.
