The synagogue was built in 1756 and restored in 1984. It is open to the public, but I didn't visit it. The ground floor hosts the Museo di Gerusalemme sull'Isonzo ("Museum of Jerusalem on the Isonzo"), about the town community and its protagonists. One of them was linguist Graziadio Isaia Ascoli (1829-1907), who invented the names of Tre Venezie ("Three Venices"): Venezia Tridentina (present Trentino), Venezia Euganea (present Veneto) and Venezia Giulia (the provinces of Gorizia and Trieste).
