Moreshet seminar - adaptive reuse of Jewish religious properties @ Online webinar

 

A 1-1/2 day seminar of the Moreshet project, an EU-funded Jewish heritage project linking half a dozen towns and cities in Europe.

Theme of the seminar (which barring COVID would have taken place in Mantova, Italy) is  “Adapt to Reuse”, dealing with aspects related to recovering and reusing of Jewish religious properties. The online event will give the opportunity, through case studies, to learn and identify the possibilities, outline problems and evaluate solutions in the area of Jewish heritage Architecture.

The opening session on Tuesday 11 May at 18:00 CET, will be introduced by a narrated concert, music by Salomone Rossi Mantovano, followed by official greetings and a keynote presentation.

The Seminar working session on Wednesday 12 May, is divided into morning and afternoon blocks. At the end of each block  a workshop discussion will be held.

The morning session will concentrate on case studies from Italy, such as: cemeteries, disused synagogues, and an archeological site. The second session will be dedicated to case studies from outside Italy.
