J-ITALY

In the era of the unification of Italy and its colonial expansion, Italian Jews were confronted with new ways to look at the Mediterranean world which, in ever-changing configurations, had been for centuries part of their life. In 1935, ten years into the fascist dictatorship, against the background of European antisemitism and Italy's invasion of Ethiopia, two exponents of the tiny Italian Zionist movement undertook journeys to the world beyond the peninsula: Leo Levi to British mandate Palestine and Carlo Alberto Viterbo to Italian-occupied Ethiopia. Their stories will be the topic of our Fall program.
