Abstract: This article, written by Giovann Battista Pellegrini talks about 'Santa Nevissa', often mentioned in authors of the '500 who write in language or dialect (Venetian). The author delves deeper into this subject to try and find out through past writings if Santa Venissa was an imaginary Saint invented by writers (especially Europeans who resided in the Islamic East) or perhaps the Holy Nefissa is not an imaginary creation, an invention burlesque of Tuscan-Venetian writers and playwrights, but a real call - now dimmed and distorted - of the well-known 'Sayyida' Muslim.
