Chiesa Sant'Agostino Treviso

Organ details


In our area, in which 18th and 19th century organs from the Veneto school prevail, an organ from the Lombardy school is a novelty. The Serassi organ in S. Agostino was built in 1858 and perhaps the fact that a Lombard organ-maker was engaged is due to the fact that this church belongs to the Padri Somaschi Religious Order which has its roots in Lombardy. The disposition of this instrument differs from the essential rationality of the Veneto tradition and is rich in coloured stops. It is located in the choir above the main door of the church and enclosed in a neo-classical case decorated with imitation marble. The instrument was recently renovated by the organ-maker Giorgio Carli from Pescantina (Verona).
