The Schiavoni (Slavs) were Dalmatian merchants who formed an active trading colony in Venice and in 1451 built their own confraternity close to the Riva degli Schiavoni, where they moored their vessels.
Their tiny scuola contains one of the most irresistibly appealing sequences of pictures to be found in Venice, executed by Carpaccio, the most popular story-telling painter of the 15thC, who used to depict an imaginative early Renaissance Venice, where scenes combine fantasy and reality, and architectures present a style which materialize in the small, exquisitely-crafted Church dei Miracoli, built at the end of the 1400s to contain a miracle-working image of the Virgin Mary.

Clad in sheets of softly-colored marbles, it seems both quintessentially Venetian and not quite real. It was described as second only to San Marco shortly after it was built, and has remained one of the most loved and admired of all Venetian buildings ever since.
