The Synagogue

The Synagogue of Livorno was built in 1962 on the place where it was the ancient Synagogue, partially destroyed during the last World War. The first Synagogue was erected in Livorno in 1603, a modest and initially rather simple structure; in the course of the seventeenth century, growing the Jewish presence in the city, a widening became indispensable. The bombings of the Second World War destroyed partially the temple. In the post-war period it was believed that this was the occasion in order to create after the tragedy of the war a monument to the Jewish vitality, that would assumed symbolic meaning just because a numerous, ancient and of great tradition community was involved. The architect Di Castro planned a building that recalled in the shape the Tabernacolo or the Big Curtain destined to keep the Arca of the Alliance.
