Saluzzo

THE SYNAGOGUE WITH FRESCOES

A small group of Jews of this town became from the 16th century the reference point for those living in the surrounding rural areas. In 1601 the Marquisate of Saluzzo passed to the Savoy. In 1724 they were closed in ghetto. With the arrival of Napoleon the community took part in the first wave of Emancipation. A typical synagogue from the ghetto era is located on the last floor of a building. It is unique in their kind for some frescoes on the ceiling.
