The scuola; School of St. George of the Slavs; confraternity house or school represented the Dalmatian's history and culture. The group had three patron saints: Saint George, St. Jerome and St. Tryphon. The community gained important when they were gifted the relics of St. George in 1502, following this they purchase the former St. Caterina Hospital and Giovanni de Zan designed the restoration and rebuilding of the property creating the scuola. Vittore Carpaccio was given the task of decorate the interior which he did with seven painted panels depicting the Stories of the Patron Saints of the Scuola (1502-1508).
