National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah

The National Museum of Italian Judaism and the Shoah - MEIS was born with the law of 17 April 2003 n. 91, then amended by law no. 296 of December 27, 2006, "as evidence of the events that characterized the two thousand year Jewish presence in Italy". This decision recognizes and enhances the exceptional continuity of a rich, uninterrupted but unknown path, in which Jews have brought their traditions and a fundamental cultural contribution to the history and fabric of the country, between periods of persecution, which began with closure in ghettos and culminating in the tragedy of the Shoah, and others of coexistence and fruitful interactions. In recounting the life experience of a consolidated minority, MEIS is above all a place for meeting and exchange. A laboratory of ideas and reflections open to all, which stimulates the debate on Judaism and the value of dialogue between cultures.
