Taormina

MEMORY IN THE NAMES OF THE STREETS

Taormina always had a very small Jewish community. It is mentioned in various documents dated from 1415 on. There were frequent episodes of racial intolerance, which led to the synagogue being destroyed during a riot in 1455. The Jewish quarter was in the area of the Cathedral. The memory of their presence lives on in the place names.
