The National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah - MEIS - recounts the over two thousand years of Jewish experience in Italy, letting us know about life, thought and essencial contributions to history and Country's culture, with special attention to the persecution's period and Shoah.

MEIS is a place where everyone is welcomed, a laboratory for ideas and reflections on what it means to be a minority, encouraging the debate on Judaism, its future in Italy and the value of dialogue between cultures.

The final arrangement, will include: public reception, exhibition areas, the MEIShop, a library, archive and documents and cataloguing center, a restaurant, an auditorium, educational laboratories and offices.




Jews, an italian story - PERMANENT EXHIBITION
The exhibition itinerary regards the most important topics from Middle Age to Renaissance, which describe the permanent narration. With "Jews, an italian story", MEIS illustrates the italian Judaism's experience, describing how it raised and developed from Roman Age Peninsula to Middle Age, and how it built its particular identity, compared to other diaspora's places, until Renaissance. Thanks to some specialists' videos, precious and rare artifacts, full immersion stops, multimedia files, recreations (Jerusalem's Temple, Tito's Arch, Ostia and Bova Marina's Jewish Synagogues), sounds and music, the itinerary identifies the origins and the diaspora's areas of the Jews, and recalls the exile's routes towards western Mediterranean Sea.
It shows their stability in Rome and South Italy, it talks about migration, slavery, integration and religous intolerance, compared with both pagan and christian world. It follows Judaism's flowering in South Italy during Middle Age, before their expulsion, and then the clarifing of an italian Jewish culture all over the Country. As an introduction to the museum's topics, the multimedia exhibition "Through the eyes of the italian Jews", edited by Giovanni Carrada e Simonetta Della Seta: 2200 years of history and italian culture in twenty-four minutes, seen and told with a Jewish perspective.
