Abstract: A seventeenth-century plan of the demolished medieval church of Santa Maria del Giglio in Venice specifies with relative clarity the layout of the sixteenth century organ loft and, in particular, the location of the four Sibyls by Giuseppe Porta called Salviati that decorated the supporting structure. Combining this information with the one obtainable from written sources and the surviving paintings, the author proposes a graphic reconstruction of the whole organ complex, that included – as we know – Jacopo Tintoretto’s doors representing the Evangelists, and a Virgin and Child (attributed to his workshop) located on the ceiling of the balcony. One gets the image of a quite impressive architecture, probably contemporary to the lavish sculptured decoration in gilded wood that covered the entire medieval nave giving it a modern appearance.
