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.
Today, 16th October we’ll open the new video-installation inside the ancient Sukkà of the Museum.
Photo animations and interviews to tell the importance of the Jewish festivity of Sukkoth.
In collaboration with Jewsih Community of Venice, Adei Wizo and CoopCulture.
