The Marinaressa gardens are located along the Riva dei Sette Martiri (was Empire Riva), the monumental waterfront of the city of Venice. It was built in the thirties of the XXth century, during the Fascist period, with intent celebratory and took the place of the long sequence of squeri and shipyards, which for centuries had operated in the area. Situated in the Castello district, along the part of the San Marco basin between the Arsenale and the Biennale Gardens and is the extension of the Riva degli Schiavoni and the following banks (the bank of Ca ‘di Dio and the bank of San Biagio). Before arriving at the Giardini of Biennale are the two gardens of Marinaressa, the Ponente one, recently reopened to the public, and that of Levante. The two gardens, newly built, frame the complex of houses of Marinaressa and have behind the Via Garibaldi, of Napoleonic system and, further north, the south wall of the Arsenale. They are therefore a short distance from Piazza San Marco, overlooking the basin, and are situated within a very inhabited and lived Sestiere in Venice.
