Museo della Cultura Ebraica

Housed inside the Jewish Ghetto, this museum is divided into two sections.

The first displays written testimonies from the Jewish people who lived in Pitigliano‘s ghetto from the 16th century right up to the 19th century.

Some of these testimonies talk about life in Tuscany, while others tell stories and local religious legends.

The second part of the museum displays everyday and ceremonial objects used in the Synagogue and in the other buildings in the ghetto.

There’s also a large collection of beautifully painted Baroque works that have been done in the typically elaborate Italian style of the time, but depict Jewish religious figures.
