The Vittorio Veneto Synagogue


From inside, looking out.

From outside, looking in.

Enough desert and Beer Sheva Brutalism; let's see some Italian Baroque style beauty!
This 17th century interior of a small synagogue in the town of Vittorio Veneto near Venice was transferred to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem in 1965 and was faithfully reconstructed.

I remember visiting this!

VP, you mean the real one, the original near Venice??

What I see here looks lovely, Dina.

Absolutely... save it for new generations to love. The surviving synagogues in Venice are truly gorgeous but do people use them any more?

Really pretty - I especially like the wooden dome! Lovely all around.
