Associazione Piazza San Marco
22 March 2016


The main local and national newspapers are in these days giving due emphasis to the 500th anniversary of the Ghetto in Venice, the first in Europe, which is still today a vibrant and frequented part of the city where the Jewish religious and administrative institutions and five synagogues remain. So the exhibition to be hosted in the Doge’s Palace from 18 June to 13 November 2016 in the Doge’s Apartment absolutely must be pointed out. An exhibition entitled “Venezia, gli Ebrei e l’Europa”, which “proposes describing the processes behind the creation and foundation of the first ‘enclosure’ for Jews created in the world, but at the same time intends broadening its gaze to the relations established with other Italian and European Jewish (and other) districts. The aim of this event is to highlight the wealth of relations between Jews and Venice, and between Jews and civil society in the different periods of the long history of their stay in Venice and in the Veneto, European and Mediterranean areas”. So a very important appointment for our city.
