Santa Maria del Giglio


Santa Maria del Giglio is a church in Venice, Italy.

Printed on a zinc plate with chalcographic ink (technique used: acquaforte and aquatint) on rosaspina white paper.
The chalcography was then coloured by hand using the watercolor technique. The abbreviation P.d.A. at the bottom left, instead of the serial number, means “artist’s proof” (P.d.A. “Prova d’Artista”).

The church, whose name translates into St. Mary of the Lily, is more commonly known as Santa Maria Zobenigo after the Jubanico family who founded it in the 9th century. The edifice is situated on the Campo Santa Maria Zobenigo, west of the Piazza San Marco. It was rebuilt by Giuseppe Sardi for Admiral Antonio Barbaro between 1678 and 1681 and has one of the finest Venetian Baroque facades in all of Venice.
