Sinagoga e Museo di Arte e Cultura Ebraica

Florence
Price
€3 - €5
Presentation
The grand synagogue of Florence was inaugurated in 1882, a few years after the Emancipation of the Italian Jews in 1861 with the proclamation of Italian Unity. It is one of the most important examples in Europe of the exotic Moorish style. Its physiognomy, unlike traditional Florentine architecture of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and the large cupola covered in green copper (originally gilded) stand out along the city skyline and this city monument is visible from every panoramic view spot. The interior is especially atmospheric for the richness of the geometric decorations in the wall frescoes, the soft light filtering through the stained-glass windows and the splendid mosaics.

An integral part of a visit to the synagogue is the Museo Ebraico, founded in 1981 and expanded in 2007. Set up on two floors inside the building, it hosts a rich collection of ceremonial Jewish art objects. Silver pieces and fabrics originating from the old synagogues of the Florentine Jewish ghetto and photographic and archival documentation of the history of the Jewish community in Florence. On the third floor one finds objects and furnishings connected to the most important moments in Jewish life, family ritual and religious festivals. One room is dedicated to the memory of the Holocaust and equipped for screenings.
