It was with the papal bull “Cum nimis absurdum” that, in 1555, Paul IV founded what was to become one of the oldest and finest “Ghettoes” in the world. And within those tiny Roman alley ways winding their way around the Church of Santa Maria del Pianto, the ruins of the Portico d'Ottavia and the banks of the River Tiber near Isola Tiberina, that the Jews were relegated to live. It was here also that, over the centuries, they built up an important part of Rome’s tradition.

Designed by Vincenzo Costa and Osvaldo Armanni, the Great Synagogue of Rome, or Tempio Maggiore, was built from 1901 to 1904 on the banks of the Tiber, overlooking the former ghetto. The eclectic style of the building makes it stand out, even in a city known for notable buildings and structures.

The Jewish Museum of Rome, located in the monumental building of the Great Synagogue, was opened in 1960 to display the collections of the Jewish Community of Rome: Roman silverware from the 17th and 18th century, precious textiles from all over Europe, miniated parchments and marble carvings saved when the Cinque Scole, the five synagogues of the Ghetto, were demolished.
