Century: XV°

Church: Basilica of San Pietro di Castello

DATE: XV century

POSITION: Lando chapel – back wall (on map n°26)

METHOD: sculpture

MATERIAL: marble

The small Lando family chapel is located along the left nave next to the Vendramin chapel.

The gothic style of the space is a testimony to the previous building from the XII century.

The mosaic by Arminio Zuccato is placed on the altar, first realised on paper by Jacopo Tintoretto.

In this chapel, other than the marbled balustrades of an anonymous artist and the bust of San Lorenzo Giustiniani, a walled in fragment of the late-Roman mosaic can still be admired at the foot of the altar, and testifies to the temple’s ancient structure.
