Neighbourhood: Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

Before to die , Bernardino degli Albizzeschi (1380-1444) who will be remembered as Saint Bernardino da Siena , used to predicated poverty and charity in Venice and used to live in the hospice of Saint Giobbe.
After his death with a donation of Doge Cristoforo Moro , the works for the construction of this church could begin in 1450 and ended in 1493.
Found it closed, I can only admire the beautiful marble portal with a sculpture of the Saint Giobbe

This was a peaceful church unlike many of the others we went to. And the outside though plain is pleasant with a quiet square. We did not go inside.

Plain but Good!

A rather non descript church from the outside, San Giobbe (St. Job) was established in 1378 as an oratory and hospice for poor people; it was only in 1450 that the construction of the today’s church was started, after a visit to Venice of the charismatic friar Bernardino da Siena in 1443. St. Job is one of the earliest examples of Renaissance architecture in Venice. Unfortunately, the paintings by Bellini, Carpaccio and Basaiti were taken from the church and are now in the Galleria dell ’Accademia museum, to which they have been returned after Napoleon stole them during the occupation of Venice. Doge Cristoforo Moro is buried in San Giobbe church together with his wife Cristina Sanudo. Moro, governor of Cyprus, is identified by some as the man who inspired Shakespeare’s Othello. Don’t miss the tomb of Rene de Voyer de Palmy, French ambassador to the Republic of Venice, by the French sculptors Claude Perreau and Thomas Blanchet. Its altarpieces house works by Vivarini, Pietro Lombardo, Dalla Robbia, Basaiti and Bordone; as well as Gerolamo Savoldo's 1540 "Il Presepio". Chorus Pass Church.
