THE CHIESA DI SAN LEONARDO (CHURCH OF ST. LEONARD), Piazza San Leonardo - Treviso
 
Some centuries ago in Treviso there was a Hospital, called "Ospedale di San Leonardo" (Hospital of St. Leonard), which became a church maintaining the same name after. The first written demonstration of its being dates back to 1330.
   

Today there is nothing of original church, it was raised again in 1657 and then it was modified some times: the inside of the church was rebuilt in the beginning of 19th century by a Francesco Zambon’s design and the eighteenth-century fašade was done again by the architect Luigi Candiani (about 1930).

The main side was adorned by a significant fresco representing "St. Leonard and the prisoners" by Alessandro Lepsky, unfortunately this fresco is not visible today.

In 1811 the Chiesa di San Michele was demolished and thus the title with the altar was moved to Chiesa di San Leonardo (Church of St. Leonard).

The school of millers had its religious seat in this Church, this school got to paint a beautiful triptych by Cima da Conegliano’s studio.

The most interesting works are:
 
- the canvas portraying St. Michele by Ludovico Teoput, called "il Pozzoserrato", it comes from the homonymous suppressed church.
 
- the ancona on main altar represents the Patron Saint with the saints Giacomo and Marta, made always by Pozzoserrato.

The Chiesa di San Leonardo today
- On the left, at the back, there is the fine painting by Cima da Conegliano’s studio, it represents St. Erasmo with other saints (triptych of Madonna with her child and the saints Bartolomeo and Prosdocimo) made in 16th century.

- On the ceiling there is the fresco representing Gloria di San Leonardo by G.B. Canal (18th cen.).

- Bas-relief by Giovanni Marchiori (18th century).

In the first decades of 20th-century, in Piazza San Leonardo (St. Leonard’s square), in front of the Church, the weekly market took place and the square was crossed by tram.

In that period there wasn’t yet the characteristic fountain we may see toady in front of Palazzo Spineda, which is the seat of Fondazione Cassamarca.
