Its 16th century layout can still be precisely traced amid the narrow streets: a maze of alleys tell the story of a community forced to live in a specific area by order of the Papal State. The Jewish museum was established with the aim of preserving the Jewish heritage rooted in Bologna and in its Region. In Piazza Santo Stefano stands Casa Sforno, a beautiful Jewish palace. In Bologna there is a unique example of a Hebrew inscription on a 16th century monumental building. The present-day synagogue, built in 1868, was rebuilt after the 2nd World war. It is a modern reconstruction and it can be visited on WELL in advance request. The Jewish cemetery dates back to 1869, it is located in the city’s Cemetery.
