THE CHIESA DI SAN VITO (CHURCH OF ST. VITO), Piazza San Vito - Treviso
 
The Chiesa di San Vito (Church of St. Vito) is located in the centre of Treviso, behind Piazza Monte di PietÓ and it has very old roots, which lose themselves in the history of Treviso before 11th century when there was a hostel for the wayfarers and the sick men.
There are some proofs already in 883, it is mentioned a hospital complex in them, called "San Pietro e San Vito (St. Pietro and St. Vito)"; it belonged to St. Ilario’s Benedictine monastery. There is another reference in an Ottone I’s official certificate, made in the 981.
   

The Church became the religious seat of some main schools in Treviso after some centuries; there were the school of "Blacksmiths", "Vine - bearers", "Bomb - makers", "Coppersmiths" and "Butchers".

A small apse decorated by some frescos dating back to the first half of 13th century represents the one ruins of the oldest part of the church; this apse is the one among the oldest pictorial evidences in Treviso history.
It was discovered and restored by M. Botter in 1954. In the small apse there is an entry door to Chiesa di Santa Lucia (Church of St. Lucy).

   
The remaining part of the Chiesa di San Vito (Church of St. Vito) was rebuilt wholly in the 16th century, when the premises of Monte di PietÓ were added on it; the changes were made up of the addition of the wide portico and the tower bell was raised as we may see today adding on a second order of windows.
   
The vault of Church and the Conch are ornamented by some medieval frescos and then there is a wall shrine between two chapels which closes three naves on the background of the church; this shrine was built in 1360 and it was ornamented by Gothic friezes and shapes.
The porticoed fašade of the Church and the overlooking windows of Monte di PietÓ get to look the Chiesa di San Vito (Church of St. Vito) aliker a palace than a religious building on the outside.
