Reggio Emilia

The lively Jewish culture of Reggio Emilia dating back to the 15th century is still evident in the large synagogue at 4, via Dell'Aquila, which was built in 1672 and extended in 1858 to its present form. Today the building is closed to the public but may be visited by special permission.
The current Jewish cemetery, which was opened in 1808 and was later enlarged, has two sections and is the 6th burial place for the Jewish community of Reggio Emilia.
Throughout its history, Reggio Emilia was known for its School of Jewish studies, which attracted celebrated Rabbis including Rabbi Anania Coen (1757-1834), who printed Hebrew school texts here and produced other printed works which can be found in the city's library.
