After the Ghetto, In the World at Large.
This program explores the immediate aftermath of the end of the ghetto era. Through the stories of a family of collectors and entrepreneurs, the Treves de’ Bonfil and the work of Luigi Luzzatti, prominent economist, politician and intellectual of international renown, the panel will discuss the legacy of the ghetto and the ways in which it was understood during 150 years after its end.
A multimedia presentation on the history of the Venice Ghetto will precede the talk with Martina Massaro (Università Iuav, Venezia) and Cristiana Facchini (University of Bologna).
This event is part of the series La Serenissima (February 3-21,2017), a Music and Arts Festival, organized by Carnegie Hall, in collaboration with the Library of Congress, The Jewish Museum, the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in Washington, DC, the Italian Cultural Institute in New York, Centro Primo Levi, and NYU Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò.
