Monogram “SZ” that stands for “San Zane”, which is Venetian dialect for St John. Floor “alla Veneziana”

A cycle of eight 'teleri' portrays each one of the respective episodes of the story of the Relic of the Cross.
They had been commissioned by the Scuola for the Oratory of the Cross that until now conserves the Relic.
At the time of the Napoleonic suppression of the Scuola, the teleri became federal property and in 1820 were assigned to the Gallerie dell'Accademia, where they are displayed until today.
