Around the middle of the XVII century, the Morosini family bought several buildings, including the one that still bears their name, which they also and renovated. The works led to the complete demolition of the original garden and its replacement with a paved courtyard; at the beginning of the XVIII century, it was used as an enclosure with rare, exotic and ferocious animals.
In 1829, the descendants of the same family had the entire complex and its garden demolished and rebuilt once again.
Today, the garden is cared for by the Dominican Sisters and, although it does not look like the original facility, it retains the typical Venetian garden features with ornamental plants mixed with vegetables and fruit trees.

The garden is crossed by two pergolas decorated with roses, passion flowers and American vines.
The vegetation which grow inside is quite variegated. During the different seasons, visitors can enjoy some beautiful Chimonanthus, hydrangeas (Hydrangea macrophylla), roses, iris, petunias, snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus), mimosas, dahlias, palms, apricots, persimmons, figs, pomegranates, olive trees (Olea European), and cypresses (Cupressus sempervirens).
