Antico Ghetto e Sinagoga Pitigliano, Pitigliano

Often considered Italy's "Little Jerusalem," Pitigliano is an excellent place to dive into Italo-Jewish history, and there is perhaps no better starting point than Antico Ghetto e Sinagoga Pitigliano. The gold-and-white synagogue was built in 1598 and boasts carved pews, a wooden pulpit, and a Holy Ark. Though the synagogue is rarely used today, you can still check out the venues for the ritual bath, the striking of unleavened bread, and the kosher butcher and winery. Surrounding the synagogue is the ghetto, where you can find a labyrinth of alleys, winding staircases, small squares, and shops. This historical ghetto served as the center of the Jewish community in Pitigliano for many centuries, and is a charming place to lose yourself in today.

  • A blast from the past. A valuable cultural treasure and tradition of the community population. The Jews of Pitigliano have contributed in an exemplary manner to the growth of the country and their presence is felt in every corner and with each breath. Sacred place and memory, do not miss (in all senses)

  • Deserves a walk inside the narrow streets that make up the ghetto of Pitigliano. Don't miss the glimpses in the valley below.

  • For the first time I had the opportunity to see a Jewish ghetto and to better understand how it was structured. Very interesting!
