Things to see
Designed by Vincenzo Costa and Osvaldo Armanni the synagogue is an example of Babylonian style, with painted ceilings and an impressive free-standing ark.
The uniqueness of this very old community is evident also in the décor of this house of worship: on the walls Aramaic symbols are mixed with Hebrew ones.
In 1960 the Jewish Museum of Rome was opened to illustrate the 2000 year old history of this community. Roman silverware, precious textile form all over Europe and many other artifacts are now displayed here.
