Ghetto Ebraico - Bologna, Italy
Ghetto Ebraico
Via dell'Inferno, Bologna, Italy 40126Map
Neighborhood: Porta Piera

The Jews were already present in Bologna in the 12th Century, and they built this ghetto circa 1556. They were segregated in this district which had to be entered by the means of two large walls full of portals in Via Zamboni and Via Oberdan. The architectural environment in the ghetto has conserved intact the evocative nature of the narrow, labyrinthical streets such as the Via dei Giudei (the street of the Jews), Via dell'Inferno (Hell Street), and Via Valdonica, etc. There is a memorial stone on Via dell'Inferno 16 to commemorate the Synagogue, and a multimedia Jewish Museum was opened on Via Valdonica.
