Overview

The synagogue was designed by Giuseppe Del Rosso in the mid-18th Century with delightful contributions in wood by Niccolò Ianda and Pietro Rossi. A story that seems to have a grain of truth in it says that the columns in the Arca were brought from Jerusalem. Archaeological excavation suggests that the synogogue was built on top of another building. It is the oldest synagogue in Tuscany.
