A special date to learn more about the legacy and impact of the jewish culture in Italy and around the world.
As part of the eleventh European Jewish Culture Day, on Sunday, September 5, 2010 (26 Elul 5770 in the Jewish calendar), our hotel Yes Hotel is an ideal place to visit in Rome.
The overall theme of the event is “Art and Judaism”, a complex approach, which touches a rich reality of literature, art, customs, traditions, food, music and history. As was intended by the organizers this day opens the doors to contemporary society, in order to know more aspects of this ancient and complex religion.
Through this knowledge we can break down the prejudices, stereotypes and resistance that still remain in order to have a seamless integration and social and cultural progress for all.
The event enjoys the patronage of the Presidency of the Republic; Minister of Heritage and Culture; Minister of Education, University and Research and the Minister of European Politics.
The chosen ideal city for the Italian edition was Livorno: the Tuscan was home to prominent Jews, not to mention the great artist Amedeo Modigliani. The other Italian cities concerned and all other information can be found on the website http://www.ucei.it/giornatadellacultura with the full programme of events. You can also check out http://www.jewishheritage.org for other European countries involved in the festivities.
