Useful Info

Nowadays the old Jewish Ghetto is a charming area, but when it was established in 1555 Rome’s Jews were suffering persecution. In 1556 Pope Paul IV erected a high wall around the area and the residents were locked in at night. Quaint now, it was once a dank, unhealthy place. In the past many sightseers came, including John Evelyn who in 1645 witnessed a circumcision, pronouncing it a ‘slovenly ceremony’.

On Sundays until 1848 the Jews were driven into Sant’Angelo in Pescheria to listen to sermons in the hope that they would convert to Christianity. In 1943 the Nazis occupied Rome and of the 2,000 Jews sent to concentration camps only 15 survived. The Synagogue (1848) is still in use.
