1516-2016 A GHETTO 500 YEARS OLD

March 29th, 2016 will mark the 500th anniversary since the establishment of the Jewish Ghetto of Venice.
To honour the historical anniversary, to foster the Jewish heritage of the site and guarantee its future as a key religious, cultural and artistic site open to people worldwide, the Jewish Community of Venice and the Municipality of Venice have formed a Committee (“I 500 anni del Ghetto di Venezia”) whose function is to promote and coordinate all events that reflect and respect the spirit of the occasion, in collaboration with national and international institutions as well as individuals.
The overall program of initiatives is going to re-establish the Ghetto, the Jewish quarter where the very word ‘ghetto’ originated, as a meeting point of people, a crossroads of cultures, a gateway to understanding the history of Jewish civilization, and a symbol of freedom beyond walls.
On this web site and on www.veniceghetto500.org we will publish all the events and special guided tours that we will offer.
The main events managed and endorsed by the Committee are: the opening ceremony and concert at the Fenice Opera House (March 29th 2016), the exhibition on “Venice, the Jews and Europe” at Palazzo Ducale (June-November 2016) and the transformation of the Jewish Museum.
