VENICE AND THE HISTORY OF THE JEWISH COMMUNITY

THE JEWISH GHETTO OF VENICE

For centuries, the Venetian economy was based primarely on trade: luxury goods such as spices, silk and pigments that were imported from the Middle and the Far East.

No wonder the city became a real melting pot of different cultures and people: Greeks, Armenians, Persians and Turks spent the winter before taking to the Sea again to return home. Many settled on a permanent basis. Laws and regulations regarding different nationalities had to be issued  and, in 1516, the Jews were the only ones to be granted their own quarter.

A fascinating history of prejudice and hospitality, important to more deeply understand the origins of the jewish ghetto in Venice.

Visits will be presented by local tourist guide Laura.
