The church of San Bartolomeo (Saint Bartholemew) near the Rialto, was attended by the large community of German merchants in the city (the same who frequented the Fondaco dei Tedeschi nearby) and this explains the presence of Saint Sebaldus, patron saint of Nuremberg, as it says on the cartouche. These antique organ doors are among the rare public works painted by Sebastiano Luciani in the city of his birth before leaving for Rome in 1511 with Agostino Chigi, acclaimed patron of the arts.
