Beyond the ghetto. Inside&Outside.
MEIS (National Museum of Italian Judaism and Shoah) from the 29th of October 2021 to the 15th of May 2022.
On the 29th of october 2021, MEIS inaugurates a new exhibition: Beyond the ghetto. Inside&Otuside, edited by Andreina Contessa, Simonetta della Seta, Carlotta Ferrara degli Uberti e Sharon Reichel and prepared by the GTRF Giovanni Tortelli Roberto Frassoni Studio | inaugurated at the National Museum of Italian Judaism and Shoah in Ferrara, MEIS, and opened from the 29th of October 2021 to the 15th of May 2022.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Culture Ministery, Emilia-Romagna Region, Ferrara Municipality, the Union of Italian Jewish Communities and the Jewish Community of Ferrara, has been realized thanks to the support of Intesa Sanpaolo, The David Berg Foundation, Guglielmo De Lèvy Foundation and TPER.
The exhibition reminisces the history of Italian jews from the first ghetto in Venice in 1516 to the start of the XX century. It treats crucial moments of modern history seen by the point of view of Jewish experience, built and told through heterogeneous materials and pieces coming from all over Italy and abroad. The peculiarity of this expositive project is the will of complete the tour with objects that testify the daily Jewish life, like the door of Aron Ha-Qodesh or the proofs of personal commitment.
The exhibition gives us a clear image of the identity turning points lived by the jews in Italy and Europe: they left the ghetto to actively participate in the National History, and then they were closed in again – with Fascism – in an “inside” of rights deprivation and horror.
