The island was originally known as the Spina Lunga ("Long Edge" Spina, fishbone) because of its curved and elongated. The place later received its current name, according to some, by the Jewish community that there would be installed, but this explanation is not convincing because the former Jewish ghetto was located in the neighborhood ("sestiere") of Cannaregio. It is more likely that the name derives from the word Giudecca giudicare ("judge"; giudizio, "judgment"), with reference to the use of the island as a place of exile for dissidents aristocrats in the early ninth century. The island then became the golden age of the Republic, a resort and escape, consisting of palaces surrounded by large parks.
The Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal (at the bottom, the church of Santa Maria della Salute in Venice)
The magnificence of this period is particularly evidenced by the imposing church of Redentore ("Redeemer"), designed by Andrea Palladio between 1577 and 1592 to mark the end of the terrible plague that struck the city in 1576 and decimated a third of its inhabitants. Every year, the Doge and his entourage visited the church across the canal on a bridge of boats from the dock in the Zatterre sestiere Dorsoduro. This feast of the Redeemer has always held in the third week of July.

The place became an industrial area in the early twentieth century including shipyards and factories, and a movie studio. The decline began Giudecca after the Second World War with the gradual closure of the industrial sector. For many years, the Giudecca be degraded and seedy place, before a series of pardons not make again a quiet modern residential area, and appreciated. It is famous for its long pier north, which forms a beautiful promenade and offers a splendid view of Venice.
