NOTES: This 14th century church, located on the western-most boundary of Venice, was deconsecrated in 1811, later used as a warehouse and progressively fell into disrepair. Its restoration by Vittorio De Feo was part of a pilot project by the Municipality of Venice and the Port Authority for upgrading Venice's port waterfront. The interior, fitted with a metal structure clad with pear wood panels, now serves as a conference and exhibition venue, which includes a projection room, shops and a cafeteria.
