Il Redentore, 1577-92

A state commission for the annual Doge visit, Palladio's Il Redentore is also located on an island off Venice. There are many similarities to the Maggiore:
- interlocking temple fronts
- possibility of intention of portico, but again lack of space
- layering and plasticity
- niches with sculptures
- varying materials

- campanile flanking dome
- main temple front is supported with a combination of pilasters and engaged columns
- compact structure
- triumphal arch entrance
- instead of pedestal, a wide staircase
