Sotto lo stesso cielo


The exhibition "Under the same Sky" curated by Amedeo Spagnoletto and Sharon Reichel, celebrates Sukkot, the Jewish Festival of the Huts
Event image
Sukkot is one of the main festivals of the Jewish Calendar: it celebrates the survival of the Jewish people in the desert thanks to help from Heaven. The huts (sukkot, sukkah in the singular) symbolize the precarious nature of life and also the strong bonds with the rhythms of the land, environmental sustainability and the central role of water.

The exhibition illustrates the traditional, religious and artistic sides of the festival and to its close link with nature. It is a new path through the Museum, an invitation to young and adult visitors to participate actively interacting with what they see and hear thus enriching the meaning of the exhibition.

For the first time, 10 decorated wooden panels depicting biblical scenes will be on display. They were made for a Venetian sukkah in the late 18th or 19th century and are owned by the Abbey of Praglia. They are works of art of extraordinary values that survived despite their ephemeral nature and which were not accessible by the public till now.
