Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni

The Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni in Venice, northern Italy, was one of the city's confraternities, a scuola piccola. Its building has been preserved.

Since the early Middle Ages, Venice had intense commercial relationships with Dalmatia, which became even stronger when the whole region was conquered by Venice in the early 15th century. In the city, the Dalmatian immigrants were called Schiavoni. They formed a brotherhood, approved by the Consiglio dei Dieci in 1451.
