The Architecture and Urban growth of the Ghetto (1516-1797)

The area that was once reserved for the various Jewish communities, along with the transformation of its bustling urban fabric, are key features of the digital reconstruction project, which offers a temporal glimpse at the Venetian Ghetto. It is a long virtual journey that gives the viewer an insider’s perspective of the Jewish enclosures. The rare backwards journey in time offers the chance to see something that is no longer in existence, given the radical works done during the 19th and 20th centuries.
