The island was originally known as the Spina Lunga ("Long Edge" Spina, fishbone) because of its curved and elongated shape. The place later received its current name, according to some, by the Jewish community that it would be installed, but this explanation is not convincing because the old Jewish ghetto was located in the area ("sestiere") of Cannaregio. It is more likely that the name derives from the Giudecca giudicare word ("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, in the golden age of the Republic, a resort and escape, composed of palaces surrounded by large parks.

The place became an area of industry in the early twentieth century including shipyards and factories, and a movie studio. The decline of the Giudecca began after the Second World War with the gradual closure of the industrial sector. For many years, the Giudecca is degraded and seedy place, before a series of pardons does make again a modern residential area, quiet and appreciated. It is known for its long pier in the North, which forms a very nice walk and offers a splendid view of Venice.
