The church of Santa Maria del Rosario, St Mary of the Rosary, (commonly known as I Gesuati) is an 18th century Dominican church in the Sestiere of Dorsoduro, on the Giudecca canal in Venice.
It is a well lighted building in classical style with rococo decoration and is exceptional in preserving its original form and decoration intact. The architecture and almost all the sculpture and paintings were created within the same thirty year period in the first half of the eighteenth century.
The building was started in 1725; the church was consecrated in 1743, and the last statue was in place by 1755.
