National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah
The Museo Nazionale dell’Ebraismo Italiano e della Shoah - MEIS (National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah) recounts the over two thousand years of Jewish experience in Italy, giving us a glimpse of the life, thought and fundamental contributions they have made to the history and culture of Italy, with special attention to the times of persecution and the Shoah.
MEIS is a place open to all, a laboratory for ideas and reflections on what it means to be a minority, stimulating the debate on Judaism, its future in Italy and on the value of dialogue between cultures.
The final configuration, scheduled for 2020, will include: a public reception area, exhibition areas, the MEIShop, a library, an archive and documentation and cataloging center, a restaurant, an auditorium, educational suites and offices.
