The House of Life: Gold and Stories around the ancient Jewish cemetery of Bologna” @ Bologna Jewish Museum | Bologna | Emilia-Romagna | Italy

A major exhibit at the Bologna Jewish Museum will focus on the city’s “lost” medieval Jewish cemetery:  it was destroyed in 1569 by order of Pope Pius V and was rediscovered  during excavations in 2012-2014.

the exhibit features material found in the graves — including gold, silver, and bronze jewelry incorporating gemstones and amber, as well as other precious artifacts, using them to tell the story of medieval Jewish life in the city.

It was curated and organized by the Bologna Jewish Museum and the Superintendency of Archaeology, Fine Arts and Landscape for Bologna and the provinces of Modena, Reggio Emilia and Ferrara, in collaboration with the Jewish Community of Bologna.
