Overview

In Moorish style, the architecture of this synagogue, somewhat strange by Florentine standards, attracted the original Sephardim of Florence's Hebrew community. In line with the eclecticism at the end of the 19th century, its architecture also contains Christian elements such as the transept, the apse, the pulpit and the dome which with its green copper roof, is one of the city's most visible landmarks. All the internal walls were decorated between 1882 and 1890 by a local painter: Giovanni Panti, who made use of gold-plating to highlight the Moorish designs.
