I've had it with Modernism for a while!
The Santa Maria dei Miracoli (1489) by Renaissance Master Pietro Lombardo (1435-1515) is one of the finest examples of Venetian Renaissance architecture.

The facade is lavishly decorated with polychrome marbles and the interior is dominated by an ornamental marble stair which features exquisite reliefs, mostly also by Lombardo and his sons. 

For those who are going to Venice this summer, The Miracoli is located at Campo Santa Maria Nova, not far from Rialto Bridge.
