Two People, One Womb: The Jews of Italy
Jews have been living in Italy since the last centuries BCE, even before the destruction of the second Temple. They’ve adopted local music, food, language, style and customs. There have been tough times, but overall it is a story of co-existence and mutual respect. We’ll explore the history of Jews during the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the ghettos of Venice, Mantua and Rome through emancipation, World Wars and the present day. We’ll discover language, poetry, music, theater, liturgy and – of course – cuisine.
