Fodor's Review

When the Dominicans took over the church of Santa Maria della Visitazione from the suppressed order of Gesuati laymen in 1668, Giorgio Massari, the last of the great Venetian baroque architects, was commissioned to build this structure between 1726 and 1735. It has an important Giambattista Tiepolo (1696–1770) illusionistic ceiling and several other of his works, plus those of his contemporaries, Giambattista Piazzetta (1683–1754), and Sebastiano Ricci (1659–1734).
