Map

The Roman Jewish Ghetto was established as a result of Papal bull Cum nimis absurdum, promulgated by Pope Paul IV on 14 July 1555. The bulletin required the Jews of Rome, which had existed as a community since before Christian times and which numbered about 2,000 at the time, to live in the ghetto. The ghetto was a walled neighborhood with its gates locked at night.

The bulletin also revoked all the rights of the Jewish community and imposed on Jews a variety of new restrictions such as prohibition on property ownership.  In addition, Roman Jews were allowed to work only at unskilled jobs.

When Pius IX became pope in 1848, he opened up the Ghetto gates with a promise of more tolerance and integration. However, after returning from exile in 1850, following the crushing of the Roman Republic, which made strong anti-Church measures, the Pope issued a series of anti-liberal measures, including re-instituting the ghetto.

By the time of the Italian Unification in 1870, the requirement that Jews live in the Ghetto came to an end. The Ghetto was almost completely demolished. On the resulting land the new Synagogue of Rome and apartment buildings were built.

The Roman Ghetto was the last remaining ghetto in Western Europe until ghettos were reintroduced by Nazi Germany in the 1930s.

Centered on lively Via Portico d’Ottavia, today the Jewish Ghetto is a wonderfully atmospheric area studded with artisan’s studios, vintage clothes shops and popular restaurants.
