This was built at the end of the 15th Century, and was restored in the middle of the 16th Century. The school is dedicated to the Dalmati, a fundamental component of the Republic; and the name comes from Schiavonia, as Dalmazia was once called. The Schiavoni were devoted to St George, St Tryphon and St Jerome. It contains a famous cycle dedicated to the life of St George, which was painted by Vittore Carpaccio over five years. The iconoclastic works of Augusto Gentili are fundamental to understanding the building.
