Venice, the Jews and Europe : 1516-2016 Hardback


The history of the Venice Ghetto, how it developed, its architecture, the concrete life of its inhabitants and their relations with the whole city form the subject of this book. A reconstruction of the Ghetto in its various historical phases makes it possible to see exactly how the quarter grew.

Along with that are closely analysed the Jewish religion s customs and rites, the outstanding importance of Venetian Jewish printing the first in Europe, the cultural, artistic and artisanal, linguistic, familiar and economic contexts. In short, the story of a complete and enthralling microcosm that grew and prospered for over four centuries within the Serenissima Republic.
