Rabbi Dario Disegni

“Rabbi Dario Disegni, a 20th-Century Story”, produced by  the Archivio Terracini of Turin. Rabbi Disegni was the spiritual guide of the Jewish Community of Turin from 1935 to 1959. Set against the larger historical context that goes from the Unification of Italy to the end of World War II, the video analyzes five different moments of Rabbi Disegni’s life: his education in the early XX century; his spiritual upbringing within the Jewish community of Turin; the two World Wars and the tragic loss of his family; his teaching and the translation of the Bible, to which he dedicated the last period of his life.
