  • The Porta San Bortolo Piazza Umberto Merlin, in a few minutes you reach Corso del Popolo: as saying that we are in the heart of this city, of a beauty so sweet, so natural, that everything appears nearby, accessible, everything speaks with instinctive simplicity to our need to feel emotions. The elegance of Porta San Bortolo, the beauty of the square where stands quietly coffee with gazebo, a few restaurants on the opposite side, people in such great numbers in this central area: everything communicates a gentle grace that stays in the blood.

  • Entering Rovigo from Porta San Bartolomeo, it turns out one of the most picturesque corners of the city. Right, opens Piazza Merlin, occupied by fountain surrounded by benches, trees and rose bushes, born from an evisceration of the Fascist era. In its place stood one of Italy's most distinctive ghettos, to multiple plans with courtyards, shops and synagogue. A plaque in 1627 on the main entrance door (in line with the current Via X July), recalled his institution. Broken and scraped in 1797 the Napoleonic wave that opened the ghettos, now sits at the top of the three columns that surround the South side door and marking one of the entrances to the Piazzetta Annonaria, formerly Dominican convent. Were 17 families entered the Ghetto. Their names are searched among Recommendations, Ancona, Luzzatto, Voghera, Cardoso, Modena, Ravenna, Rieti, Ricchetti, Macerata, Marsilio, Rabeni, Alpron, Baruch. The Ghetto remain some buildings northeast corner. In an apartment on the East side lived John Baker, painter and Decorator (Venice 1835-Rovigo 1912). Only trattoria is the tavern with garden inside. In Via X July, after la Piazzetta Annonaria, there are the palaces of Ancona, Bakar and Coen. Via Cavour, the porch of the Jews relive the atmosphere of Jewish shops. Bottom left there is still the Bottegon of Jews was of Ravenna, restored but unused. Two Jewish cemeteries: the oldest behind the Temple of the Blessed Virgin of succour and the nineteenth century in Via Stacche. Plaque with the victims of the Holocaust on the wall of the old cemetery.
