Photographer's Note

San Giorgio dei Greci or in Greek Άγιος Γεώργιος των Ελλήνων ("Saint George of the Greeks") is a church in the sestiere or neighborhood of Castello, Venice, northern Italy. It was the center of the Scuola dei Greci, the Confraternity of the Greeks in Venice.

For centuries, despite the close ties of Venice to the Byzantine world, the Greek Orthodox rite was not permitted in Venice. In 1498, the Greek community gained the right to found the Scuola de San Nicolň dei Greci, a confraternity which aided members of that community. In 1539, after protracted negotiations, the papacy allowed the construction of the church of San Giorgio, financed by a tax on all ships from the Orthodox world.

La chiesa di San Giorgio dei Greci č un edificio religioso della cittŕ di Venezia, situato nel sestiere di Castello, nelle vicinanze della chiesa di San Zaccaria. La chiesa č utilizzata come cattedrale dall'Arcidiocesi ortodossa d'Italia ma appartiene all'Istituto Ellenico, ad essa adiacente e, quindi, allo Stato greco.
