Sinagoga di Alessandria

Monuments

 

The Synagogue will be closed to the public till 30 April 2014 because of restoration works.

With its impressive façade decorated with late-Gothic motifs, the synagogue of Alessandria is one of the largest in Italy.  Recently returned to its original splendour through a painstaking restoration project, the Jewish temple of Alessandria is a place rich in the history, fascination and memory of a community dating to the fifteenth century.
The current synagogue was built in the eclectic style in 1871 on the structure of an earlier temple. It is a beautiful example of a post-emancipation synagogue, mixing elements typical of the Jewish tradition with others derived from places of Christian worship, like the choir equipped with an organ.  
On the ground floor one may visit the collection of the Small Temple, used by the community during the winter months. Climbing to the first floor, one can access the Large Temple. Rectangular in plan, with neo-Gothic decorative motifs in the women's gallery and the choirs above the Torah, the Large Temple is embellished with stained glass windows.
