Ghetto, Venice: 28 reviews and 56 photos
"Li Giuidei debbano tutti abitur unidi." With these words, in 1516, the Senate of the Republic, and precisely Zaccaria Dolfin, ordered that all the Jews be segregated in the northern part of the city, between the Grand Canal and Cannaregio. And this state of affairs remained until 1797, when the French army pulled down the doors of the Ghetto.
Earlier in 20th century, in 1938, there were 1.471 Jews living in the tower houses in the Ghetto, whereas in the 17th century there had been more then five thousand.
