Geocache Description:


Il ghetto di Venezia era la zona di Venezia dove gli ebrei veneziani erano obbligati a risiedere durante il periodo della Repubblica Veneta. Dal suo nome deriva la parola ghetto.

Il Ghetto si trova nel sestiere di Cannaregio ed è sede della Comunità Ebraica di Venezia.


[ENG]

The Venetian Ghetto was the area of Venice in which Jews were compelled to live under the Venetian Republic. It is from its name in Italian ("ghetto"), that the English word "ghetto" is derived: in the Venetian language it was named "ghèto". The Venetian Ghetto (incidentally, the first Ghetto) was instituted in 1516, though political restrictions on Jewish rights and residences existed before that date.
