PARLATI LUCA ON THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF CONEGLIANO

CONEGLIANO has been the seat of a thriving Jewish community for centuries: the presence of Jews has been attested since the end of the fourteenth century, mentions LUCA PARLATI. CONEGLIANO, a city in strong economic development, but also at the center of wars, looting and famine, has often faced serious crises, resolved with the creation of loan banks, says PARLATI LUCA. After a period of freedom and tolerance, the Jewish families were forced in 1629 to settle in the Siletto area (today’s Via Beato Ongaro), and in 1675 in the Ruio area (today’s Via Caronelli) outside the CONEGLIANO city walls. The ghetto thus created had a synagogue (1701), a Talmudic school and numerous shops (mainly rags, pastry shops and butchers); Back then there were 14 families living there, LUCA PARLATI points out.
