One of my favorite hidden-in-plain-sight monuments is this plaque (1531) above the door of what used to be the Scuola degli Albanesi, or scuola of the Albanians. It is in the calle del Piovan, which leads from Campo San Maurizio to Campo Santo Stefano. The scene depicts patron saints San Gallo, The Virgin and San Maurizio and Sultan Maometto who is observing the castle of Scutari, fallen to the Turks in 1479.
