Event image
The exhibition takes the visitor on a journey through time, between the history lines of the Jewish Community in Ferrara, and it will be open to the public until March 1st, 2020. The organization has been possible with the help of the Municipality of Ferrara and the Jewish Community, and with the patronage of Holding Ferrara Servizi, the Region Emilia-Romagna, and the Union of the Jewish Community in Italy.
“Jewis Ferrara” tells the story of a community in the city, and it does it through traditional objects, which here are explained and documented: from the Talled (the scarf used by men for morning prayers) owned by Rabbi Leoni, the man who tried to stop the fascist distruction in the Synagogue of Ferrara, to the famous Finzi shop, a great reference point in the city.
The documentary film, with the contribution of the Contemporary History Institute of Ferrara – ISCO – and the interviews by Ruggero Gabbai will complete the tale of a still living experience, and of a city with a past to protect, and a future still to build.
