Italy marks the European Day of Jewish Culture — with events in scores of towns and cities around the country. There are also events scheduled later in the month.
The main centre this year is Padova.
The exhibition focuses on the archaeological findings that demonstrate a Jewish presence in what is now Turkey that goes back more than 2,500 years.
The exhibit includes photos, diagrams, information panels, a 3D reconstruction, and a video that document archaeological finds including inscriptions, gravestones, and the remains of ancient synagogues.
