Bologna is known for many achievement, like having the oldest University in continuous operation, or being a UNESCO “city of music,” or for being one of the richest and most forward-thinking city in Italy. But what you probably don’t know is that it once had one of the few Hebrew printing presses, the University was one of the first to incorporate Maimonides into the curriculum, and the pope would request exemplary Jewish academics from Bologna to help in research and scholarship!
Today the community is small but growing, and there are so many sites of Jewish historical and cultural importance. See the restored Bologna Synagogue, the streets of the Historic Ghetto that today zigzag through the old town, the Jewish Museum of Bologna, which traces the history of the Jews of Bologna before the expulsion, and the Jewish Cemetery.
