Shalom: the importance of the jewish community in Ferrara
This itinerary begins with a step back in time to the oldest streets of Ferrara, the charming Via delle Volte, characterized by 3 kilometres of arcades and described in the works of Giorgio Bassani.
The tour continues through the silent streets of the Jewish ghetto where we can see the façade of the school set up during the years of the racial laws to educate the Jews expelled from the state schools. We pass in front of the Synagogue with its plague which reminds us of the deportation of the Jewish community in 1943, (the Synagogue and its museum can visited upon appointment, from Monday to Thursday) The tour continues in the direction of the Cathedral and the Castle in the discovery of other Jewish traces in Ferrara. The tour includes a visit to the Jewish cemetery in the Renaissance part of the city.
