The Jewish Museum of Ferrara - The Sinagogues

Inside the museum itself there are three Synagogues which can be visited . The German Scola, the Italian Scola and the Fano Scola which are still in operation.

The Italian Scola has a large hall which is currently used for cultural events.

The German scola is the most important of the three Synagogues and is used on the occasion of the principal celebrations. Its walls are decorated with stuccos attributed to Gaetano Davia , the artist who decorated the Ferrara Civic Theatre.

The women's gallery has recently been restored. There is a display-case containing valuable and precious antique fabrics.
