Cannaregio is the northernmost of the six historic sestieri (districts) of Venice. It is the second largest in sestiere area and the largest by population,
The Cannaregio Canal, which was the main road in the city until the construction of a rail link to the mainland, gave the district its name. Development began in the eleventh century that the area was drained and parallel channels have been dredged. Although elegant qu'arabo Normandy were built in front of the Grand Canal, the area increased mainly with the working class housing and manufacturing. The history of the Venetian Ghetto is generated fascinating. When 29 March 1516, the Government of the Serenissima Repubblica issued special laws, the first Ghetto of Europe was established. This is an area where Jews were forced to live and they could not from sunset to dawn. The area was closed by monitored by guards and so far the marks of the hinges are visible there doors. Jews were allowed to practice only in some professions: they were doctors, because they were more willing and able to understand the Arabic writings, money lenders, because the Catholic religion forbids this practice, traders and " strazzarioli "ragsellers. However, Jews have held positions of success in the city as merchants, doctors, money lenders and other businesses. Ghetto existed for over two centuries until Napoleon conquered Venice and finally opened and removed each door (1797): Jews were finally free to live in other areas of the city.
In the nineteenth century, civil engineers built a street named Strada Nuova, through Cannaregio and a bridge rail and road bridge was built to connect directly to Venice Mestre. Today, areas of the district along the Grand Canal, the Rialto Bridge Station are highly frequented by tourists, but the rest of Cannaregio is residential and relatively peaceful, with the morning markets, corner shops and small cafés.
