From Friday, April 12, opens at the MEIS in Ferrara the exhibition path The Renaissance speaks Hebrew. The exhibition curated by Giulio Busi and Silvana Greco is another chapter in the story of Italian Judaism, and this new section touches the heart of the Museum's mission: to witness the dialogue between minority and majority, complex but possible, sometimes fruitful, though not without shadows.

In the Renaissance, Jews were and were in the front line, active and enterprising. In Florence, Ferrara, Mantua, Venice and Rome.
