Over the course of its history, the Jewish community gathered at various sites around the city. Towards the end of the thirteenth century there are references to an area near Piazza dei Cavalieri, known as “chiasso dei Giudei”. In the early fifteenth century it moved to the Via Cavalca area, and in the late sixteenth century with the arrival of the Levantine merchants, it crossed the River Arno to the opposite bank, and settled in the Palazzo da Scorno (Via da Scorno / Lungarno Galilei). Finally, a few years later, the Community acquired its current premises in Via Palestro, which it rented from 1595 and purchased in 1647.
