Church of San Sebastiano
The Chiesa di San Sebastiano is one of Venice
's more recent and elaborate restoration projects, thanks to contributions by the U.S. nonprofit Save Venice Inc. Fascinating details abound in this 16th-century church; among them, its recently restored ceiling panels painted by the Venetian Renaissance artist, Paolo Veronese. These works are among the most stunning examples of the artist's work—a sort of Sistine Chapel tucked away in Venice's quiet Dorsoduro neighborhood.
