A plaque outside Ferrara's synagogue bears witness to the many former Jewish inhabitants of the city who were rounded up and sent to the death camps under the Nazi occupation. For centuries, Ferrara was proud to welcome Jewish members of the community, who helped the city to flourish with their many talents. The former ghetto area is now a thriving commercial area, with cafes and shops. But the buildings lining the streets are a memorial to the past

We came here for one day visit.

We have read about Ferrara's Jewish community that was important during middle ages.

There is nothing left. The synagogue is closed since 2012. All other important Jewish buildings were sucked by local fascists during WWII.

It was a long walk but I enjoyed it. I really do not want to keep writing all the details over and over. It is well worth a visit as are all the other historical, ecclesiastical and cultural buildings. I do not go to restaurants for food, there are many in the area but I normally have a spritz and nibbles. i encourage everyone to see all they can.

The Jewish community of Ferrara has a long history of centuries. Not being a papal town, Jews were tolerated even in the 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. They were deported by the fascists and germans in WWII. This was the sad end of the main community, We strolled in the Ghetto's streets in late afternoon and couldn't visit the Community Center,

The whole Jewish quarter is worth to visit. Small little lanes and streets, you have the feeling, how people were living here. Unfortunately the museum and the synagoge was closed, and as we understood not temporary, it is almost every time closed!

If you're interested in the ways Jews lived in medieval Europe than the walking tour marked on the city maps is interesting to experience as it only takes about 10-15 minutes to traverse.

The couple of signposts that exist are only in Italian, and there aren't any significant markings on the buildings, with the exception of the synagogue on Via Mazzini. Unfortunately, you can't otur the synagogue since it was damaged in the 2012 earthquake and restoration is not yet completed. As is noted on their sign, some artifacts from the synagogue are available for viewing at MEIS located at Via Piangipane, 81.
