The Jewish Communities of the Marche region, located along the eastern Adriatic coast of Italy, have a very old history, though not many Jewish heritage sites are left today.
Our itinerary will take you through a region that was at the centre of the Papacy’s temporal power and of all the struggles, alliances, and their many and sudden shifts unparalleled in any other of the Italian regions. As a proof of this, only in the Marche you can see engraved in the main piazza of every hamlet, village, and town epigraphies proudly stating how they got free from the Church’s temporary oppressive rule.
