On March 29th 1516, under the regency of doge Leonardo Loredan, Venetian senate declared that “all Jewish people should live together” in a restricted and monitored area of the city: this was the day of birth of the first Jewish ghetto. 500 years later, the Venetian Jewish community is ready to celebrate half a millennium of history.

From March 29th on, many initiatives and events are planned to celebrate the first 500 years of venetian ghetto. This will be a great opportunity to discuss about many topics of national and international interests, as well as about Jewish people role in Venice across centuries.
