The Jewish Museum of Venice believes that the sharing of stories builds a community. For 60 years now, we have done our best to be compelling narrators of Jewish history.

We are the guardians of an amazing cultural heritage where everyone can discover themselves in a millennial encounter with otherness.

Edmund de Waal is creating a major new two-part exhibition to be displayed in the 500-year-old Jewish Ghetto in Venice, coinciding with the opening of the 58th Biennale.

The first part is located in the spaces surrounding the Canton Scuola, the beautiful 16th century synagogue in the Ghetto Nuovo, which is now part of the Jewish Museum.

New installations of porcelain, marble and gold will reflect the literary and musical heritage of this extraordinary place. The intention is to animate spaces that are little known and little understood by visitors to the Biennale and to bring new audiences into the Ghetto.
