Born in 1866 in San Giacomo di Musestrelle, near Treviso, Antonio Beni became famous in the city for his eclectic works, which oscillate between the Byzantine style and a pre-Raphaelite puritanism, supported by a profound inspiration of faith. He had studied with painters Pompeo Marino Molmenti and Luigi Nono in the Academy, and with Pietro Saccardo who was proto or architect of the St Mark's Basilica in Venice. Author of important frescoes and churches as an architect, has enriched numerous churches and chapels in the dioceses of Treviso, Padua and Venice with his works.
