I took the picture under the arch of the clock tower in Piazza San Marco, and it is nice to see how well he sees it despite the fog, it seems to touch it. La Giudecca is a large island that borders Venice to the south. The island of Giudecca is frequented by students and young professionals, in particular for informal restaurants and pizzerias along the promenade that runs alongside the lagoon. The Molino Stucky, a former mill converted into a luxury hotel, houses a trendy panoramic bar with views. The nearby Church of the Santissimo Redentore, designed by Palladio, is characterized by elegant interiors, while works of contemporary art are exhibited in the neo-gothic palace Tre Oci. Divided from the rest of Venice by the wide Giudecca Canal, its territory is considered as part of the Dorsoduro district. Even the Giudecca, like the rest of Venice, is made up of several islands connected by some bridges. The southern part of the island was a sequence of gardens, where Venetian nobles came to enjoy this place especially in spring and autumn and immersed themselves in the breathtaking view of the Lagoon. In ancient times it was called Spinalonga due to its elongated shape. Later he took this name perhaps because, for a time, the Jews lived there. For others, but with very little foundation, the term would come from "zudegà", for the "giudicato" with which at the end of the XI century some lands were granted to families first removed from the dominant and subsequently recalled from exile. On its territory, Palladio has built two splendid churches: the Redentore and the nearby Chiesa Delle Zitelle. In front of the Church of the Redeemer, on the third Saturday of July each year, a boat bridge is organized that connects the Zattere with the Giudecca. At 11.30 the most beautiful and fascinating fireworks in the world begin. The last 40 minutes in a unique context: an expanse of boats of all types, with the Venetians on board who eat and drink while waiting for the Fogos, to celebrate the end of the plague, the Feast of the Redeemer, since 1557. Dinner at Giudecca Walking through the foundations that bound it towards the Giudecca Canal that separates it from Venice, one can see all the areas that, at the end of the nineteenth century, were used as factories and construction sites, but in the past were convents. The foundation facing the Giudecca Canal, being oriented towards the north, is always in the shade, something that is particularly pleasant in the summer, but in the winter on the hard days, the water, sprayed by the wind for the big waves that break on the edges of the canal, it freezes easily. For this reason, for the Venetians, the island also takes the name of Isola dei Pinguini. In its westernmost part, on the area of ​​the former convent of San Biagio, suppressed by Napoleon, is the magnificent example of Nordic architecture, designed by the architect Ernest Wullekopf, commissioned by Giovanni Stucky for a large grain processing factory, in particular of the wheat for bread: the Mulino Stucky. Recently renovated, it has become a five-star hotel and a special residence for wealthy people. To the west of Giudecca, separated by a small canal that runs alongside the Mulino Stucky, is the island of Saccafisola, a popular area, with houses built in the second half of the 20th century. La Giudecca Copyright “All rights reserved” © By itravelinitaly.com travelers from Italy Baldassarri Giuseppe visual storytelling.
