The interior is characterised by majestic Baroque decorations, made up of spectacular teleri (canvases) by the most relevant painters form Veneto of the 17 th century, including Francesco Maffei and Antonio Zanchi. The whole building is enriched by sculptures and decorative elements such as the golden wooden altar by Giovanni Caracchio (1607), the organ by Gaetano Callido (1767) and the frescoed ceiling by Vittorio Bressanin (1887). The 57-metre-high bell tower is by Baldassarre Longhena (1773).
