Santo Stefano Room at our Relais Santa Corona

We have chosen a different name for each room of our Relais Santa Corona in Vicenza: today we are talking about the SANTO STEFANO ROOM

The church of Santo Stefano is a religious building in Vicenza, in Italy, built in the Baroque style between the end of the 17th and the first half of the 18th century on the site of one of the oldest chapels in the city. Given the antiquity of the cult of the martyr Stephen, Sottani believes it probable that a chapel in his honor was built in Vicenza in the earliest times of Christianity. However, the first certain mention relating to a chapel dedicated to the saint is contained in a bull of Pope Urban III of 1186, with which he confirms the donations that the Bishop of Vicenza Pistore had made to the canonicals of the cathedral the previous year. In 1692 Count Ascanio Thiene – expressing his wish to be buried in the church of the Theatine fathers, in the chapel of San Gaetano, wrapped in his white cloak as a member of the Confraternity of the Gonfalone – left 1000 ducats to be used for the construction of a new church. The blessing of the foundation stone took place on 25 June 1695 with the specific purpose of honoring Saint Cajetan Thiene – since 1672 proclaimed by the “very grave Council of 150” new co-patron of Vicenza together with Saint Vincent – and to commemorate his canonization, so much so that the church was named after these two saints.

Our Relais Santa Corona is very close to the church of Santo Stefano, just a few meters on foot.

Considered by his contemporaries to be the greatest living artist, Antonio Canova was celebrated as the one who had brought sculpture back to those sublime heights that were believed to be only due to classical statuary. Witness of a period of great historical and political upheavals, the humble stonemason from Possagno conquered the international art scene, competing with the greats of his time and contributing to the recovery of masterpieces through important diplomatic missions.

The man, the artist, the collector, the diplomat are the many aspects brought to light for the first time by this exhibition with which the Civic Museums of Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza, custodians of one of the collections of Canova’s works and documents large and important in the world, they pay homage to the greatest sculptor of the neoclassical era on the bicentenary of his death. About 140 works including sculptures, paintings, drawings and precious books, some of which presented to the public for the first time, guide the visitor on an ideal journey in the footsteps of Canova, from the creative universe of his atelier to the great capitals of the old continent, to discover the episodes and encounters with the characters that determined the course of his life and of European history.

In Bassano del Grappa, in the province of Vicenza, until 26 February 2023. Bassano can be reached from Vicenza and from our Relais Santa Corona in about 40 minutes by car.
