Jewish Cultural Heritage: Italian Cemeteries


NOTICE: We are sorry to inform you that due to Covid19 emergency the Summer School "Jewish Cultural Heritage: Italian Cemeteries" has to be cancelled for this year.

The Summer School will be held in 2021.

New dates and new application deadline will be published in October 2020.


The idea of a summer school has its origin in the fact that Italy possesses roughly 70% of all the Jewish cultural heritage in the world. Through the collaboration of professors from various disciplines and several Italian and foreign universities (amongst these Bar-Ilan University and the University of Maryland) and under the direction of CISE (Interdepartmental Centre for Jewish Studies ‘Michele Luzzatti’), which guarantees an international and interdisciplinary approach to the subject, the summer school intends to tackle the topic of Jewish prayer and burial sites, in particular Tuscan ones, analysed based on their architectural, artistic, linguistic, and anthropological characteristics.


The acquisition of a general understanding of the history of the Jews in Italy, an understanding of the nature of Jewish burial spaces and their architecture, knowledge of the theological-anthropological-regulatory foundations of Jewish graveyards and the ritual relationship with death, knowledge of specific epigraphic, linguistic and literary aspects (obtained through teaching in the classroom and field trips).

Who can apply

Master's degree students, holders of master's degrees, doctoral students and researchers in Hebrew Language, History, Archaeology and Linguistics, as well as experts and scholars with previous knowledge and interest in the topic. The summer school is also open to people interested in the topic, without specific linguistic skills in Hebrew.
