In 1500 Jacopo de’ Barberi censored part of this island behind clouds and cherubs. Why? Well…it was too scummy, too rough to be rapresented in the first, official aerial map of Venice. 300 years later the Swiss businessman Giovanni Stucky chose it as the location for one of the most modern and efficient mills in Europe.
Today, Giudecca offers colourful gardens, monasteries, some of the most inspirational Palladia churches in the western world. In July, Giudecca magically lights up with festoons and fireworks : we celebrate the Redeemer, who saved Venice from a violent epidemy of plague. Cherry on the cake, San Giorgio Maggiore, famous for the breath taking view of its belltower. Let’s visit it, you’ll love it. Promise.
