THE CHIESA DI SANTO STEFANO (CHURCH OF ST. STEPHEN), Via Diaz - Treviso
 
The first news about the history of the Chiesa di Santo Stefano (Church of St. Stephen), which is located in the historic centre in Treviso, date back to Lombard period when a chapel dedicated to patron saint was built here, while the first written evidences belong to 11th century.
   

At the beginning of 1500 an earthquake caused the collapse of the bell tower of the Church and it was raised again after two hundred years; the reconstruction of main body happened in the half of 18th century by earl Ottavio Scotti’s plan.
He was also the person behind the project of three altars: the two smallest altars in neoclassical style and the main altar.

The earl designed also the cathedral in Ceneda, near Vittorio Veneto in the same years. In the first of 19th century many other Trevisans Churches were extended, the same fate affected this Church with addition of side naves, once absent.
After one century, the inside of the Church was decorated richly and the roof and the walls were reworked in postwar period.

Today the Church is made by plastered bricks, we may see four columns with Corinthian order on the main side, there are two aisles sideways, they are later and they have half a pediment on the top of fašade.

The church has a rectangular plan and it preserves an ancona portraying St. Cristoforo with two apostles by Domenico Maggiotto; there is also a painting portraying St. Stephen’s martyrdom by Jacopo Guarana, located on the main altar of the Church.
