Opera Laboratori company will manage tours of the Venice Ghetto: agreement signed with the Jewish Community of Venice.

Agreement signed between the Jewish Community of Venice and the Opera Laboratori company: the latter will manage tours of the Venice Ghetto. From guided tours, with fixed departure times in Italian (at 10.30 a.m.; 11.30 a.m.; 12.30 p.m.; 1.30 p.m.; 2.30 p.m. and 3.30 p.m.) and English (11 a.m.; 12 p.m.; 1 p.m.; 2 p.m.; 3 p.m.; 4 p.m.) every hour from Sunday to Friday (only on Fridays the last tour in Italian takes place at 2.30 p.m. and thelast tour in English at 2 p.m.) to educational tours for schools and exclusive private tours to the two synagogues the Levantine Schola and the Spanish Schola, to the Cohanim midrash (a study hall founded by the Cohen family in the 1680s) and those to the ancient Jewish cemetery.

The arrangement includes multimedia supports, an integrated IT platform for reservations and presale, a dedicated website and call center in addition to exhibitions and initiatives, new printed and virtual guides that will provide enriching tours.

“The new management of Opera Laboratori,” comments Dario Calimani, president of the Jewish Community of Venice, “is already showing all the capacity for collaboration and initiative that the company is capable of producing. The new Jewish Museum of Venice, as soon as the important restoration work in which we are engaged is completed, requires that new activities and initiatives be developed as of now that are capable of awakening new interest around the Ghetto of Venice and its history.”

“For us,” stresses Beppe Costa, president of Opera Laboratori, “it is an honor to be able to collaborate with the Jewish Community of Venice in such a historic place as the first ghetto in Europe. We are doing it on tiptoe thanks to professionals specialized in the management and enhancement of realities that are quite different from a museum tout court but equally rich in history, art and tradition. We are convinced that we can give, also through our technical and restoration workshops, added value to monuments and collections that speak to the hearts as well as to the eyes of so many people.”

The Ghetto of Venice is an ancient neighborhood in the center of the city, the first “ghetto” in Europe, known worldwide for its special origins and historical events that over time have given it an appearance of great charm due to its urbanistic characteristics expressed by tall buildings with warm and welcoming colors that overlook wide spaces, surrounded by canals.
