Located in the heart of the city, Scuole Grande di San Teodoro is one of eight "Scuole Grande" churches in Venice. The term Scuole Grande refers to all-male upper-class religious confraternities who were dedicated to self-improvement, fellowship, and charity. This church was founded in 1258 when the confraternity settled in the San Salvador Church and expanded in 1551 due to a plethora of followers. In the 17th Century, the internal stairs were constructed, Giuseppe Sarde built the marble façade and Longhena created the balconies and art on the lateral façade. Today Scuole Grande di San Teodoro hosts cultural events and concerts as well as seminars and conferences in its premises.
