This church is worth visiting for the 15th-century Cappella Corner by Mauro Codussi, which features a Tiepolo altarpiece of St Lucy, bearing her limpid eyeballs on a platter. The plain brick exterior is rather rudely interrupted by apartment buildings, but as John Ruskin put it rather bluntly, ‘The exterior is nothing’.
