What to expect

The Great Synagogue of Florence, one of the most important examples of Moorish architecture in Europe, was inaugurated in 1882, a few years after the Emancipation of Italian Jews in 1861, with the proclamation of Italy's unification.

Its structure, different from the traditional Florentine architecture of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, has a large dome covered in green copper. The inside is particularly striking - for the richness of the geometric elements in the frescoes, the splendor of the mosaics, and the soft light that filters through the stained-glass windows.

An integral part of the visit to the Synagogue is the Jewish Museum, founded in 1981 and expanded in 2007. Spread over two floors, the museum hosts a rich collection of ceremonial Jewish art objects, silverware and fabrics from the ancient synagogues of the Florentine ghetto, and photographic and archival documentation on the history of Florence's Jewish communities. On the second floor, you will find objects and furnishings related to the most significant moments of the Jewish life cycle, family rituals, and religious holidays.

Moreover, you will be able to visit a projection room dedicated to the memory of the Shoah (Holocaust). There is also a computer area connected to the most important Jewish museums and centers in the world.
