DISTRICT OF DORSODURO, VENICE’S HISTORIC CENTRE

A cultural holiday in the shadow of the Basilica della Salute

The district of Dorsoduro covers the southern part of Venice including the island of Giudecca and its Chiesa del Redentore.  The name Dorsoduro refers to the quality of the soil as it is believed that this district rose up on terrain which was compact and less marshy. In the 17th and 18th centuries, it acquired dignity and prestige with a major reconstruction of churches and magnificent buildings.  Venice’s horizon changed radically with the construction of the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute and the Fondamenta delle Zattere.  During the 19th century, the district became a favourite area for rich, foreign inhabitants.  The last gondola boatyard still in operation in Venice, known as “lo squero”, is to be found here.  The artistic offering is of the highest level with the Accademia Galleries – a stunning collection of Veneto and Venetian art - , the Guggenheim Museum of modern art and the contemporary art museum, Punta della Dogana
