In the great history of Venice the scuole grandi held great power and was a way for non-noble Venetian citizens to assert power in society. Membership did not depend on occupation and did not allow nobles to hold director roles, which made the “Great Schools” different than guilds or other government institutions. The Scuola Grande di San Rocco’s building was built beginning in 1517 with the hiring of Pietro Bon as the lead architect. The traditional plan included the design of two halls which are on the ground floor and an upper hall. The upper hall, intended for meetings of the chapter is called the Sala Capitolare.
