Jewish Life in Venice and Northern Italy
Lecture series
Aug 1 – 5, 3 – 4 p.m. @OMA
With Shoshana Liessmann
Exactly 500 years ago, in 1516, the Venice Senate passed a law creating the first Jewish ghetto. The 500th anniversary this year offers us an opportunity to take a closer look at the fascinating cultural life of Jewish communities in Venice and Northern Italy. Musicians, dance-obsessed, theater folk, operatic divas, headstrong literary figures, or creatures of the night, this series of talks focuses on various aspects of Jewish culture and music history in Italy.

The lecture will be held in German language.
