Il Ghetto: Forging Italian Jewish Identities

Il Ghetto: Forging Italian Jewish Identities: 1516 - 1870
Museo ItaloAmericano, San Francisco
September 25, 2008 to February 15, 2009

Consistent with its mission of preserving the heritage of Italian Americans, the Museo is pleased to present this new exhibit and related community programs to educate the general public about this little known dimension of Italian culture.

An original documentary exhibit with vivid images and rare Italian Judaica, manuscripts, and ceramics, "Il Ghetto, Forging Italian Jewish Identities" tells the story of resistance, creativity, and cultural interaction that shaped Jewish experience in Italy's Age of the Ghetto.

The Museo ItaloAmericano in partnership with the Diller Family Jewish Studies Program, UC Santa Cruz, will present a series of lectures and cultural programs on the themes of this exhibit.

In addition to our own lecture series and symposium, the Museo has engaged in an outreach effort that has brought together many community organizations and educational institutions as community partners. These groups are supporting independent parallel programs that connect to the exhibit and feature a related aspect of the Italian Jewish experience.

Museo hours:
Tuesdays through Sundays 12-4pm
Mondays by appt.
Free Admission
