FILM: THE VENICE GHETTO
30 OCTOBER, CENTRAL SYNAGOGUE
The remarkable story of Jewish Venice, which celebrated 500 years of life in 2016 and which is the oldest ghetto in Europe, is reconstructed in this fascinating documentary told through the eyes of a Jewish teenager, Lorenzo. Born and raised in New York, Lorenzo is guided through Jewish Venice, exploring its origins and the eclectic panoply of experiences that have formed its glorious history. As Lorenzo enters a world unknown to him, his youthful curiosity melds with a myriad of stories built over centuries of unmatched cultural richness.
