The current exhibition ‘Beyond the Ghetto. Inside&Out’, guides visitors through four centuries of Italian Jewish history (1516-1914), with a focus on connections and social, cultural, economic relations between Jews and their Christian neighbours. It is the latest addition to a series of exhibitions that the Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah (MEIS, Ferrara, Italy) has sponsored and hosted to honour its official mission, which is to present Italian Jewish history to a wider public.
The talk will present and discuss the main challenges faced by the curatorial team, accompanying the audience behind the scenes of the exhibition.
Ticket sales will end 2 hours before the event start time.
