Positioned widgets must be placed directly inside Stack widgets


I am trying to implement gridview with image and a text inside it. where i want text at the bottom of image with black background. Here is my code for ListItem

class ListItem extends StatelessWidget {
    String url;
    String name;

    ListItem(this.url, this.name);
    Widget build(BuildContext context) {

        return new Container(
            child: new Column(
            children: <Widget>[
                new Image.network('${url}', fit: BoxFit.cover),
                new Positioned(
                    child: new Container(
                         child: new Text('${name}',
                         style: new TextStyle(fontSize: 20.0, color: Colors.white)),
                    decoration: new BoxDecoration(color: Colors.black),
                    padding: new EdgeInsets.fromLTRB(16.0, 16.0, 16.0, 16.0)),
                left: 0.0,
                bottom: 108.0,

With this code it is showing error

Positioned widgets must be placed directly inside Stack widgets.
Positioned(no depth, dirty) has a Stack ancestor, but there are other widgets between them:
- Column(direction: vertical, mainAxisAlignment: start, crossAxisAlignment: center)


Issue was with Column, after changing few lines from here and there i finally found that it was because of Column

Once i change Column to Stack, it works fine.

return new Container(
        child: new Stack(
