We visit today, with Cultura Hipster, one of the historical neighborhoods of Rome; the Jewish Ghetto. Considered one of the most ancient ghettos of the world, it was also the last of Europe that remained legally in 1870, when it was abolished by Vittorio Emanuele II. Walking through its streets means traveling the intense Jewish history in Europe; such as Via Catalana, which commemorates the arrival of Catalan Jews after being expelled from Spain in 1942, or the Via della Lungara, where during the Nazi occupation over a thousand people were concentrated before being transported to Auschwitz and only 17 of them returned. We can still find among its neighbors some witnesses of that tragic episode able to tell chilling stories. Anyway, today the neighborhood is a mix of cultures perfectly integrated into the cosmopolitan Rome, it’s famous because its bars and restaurants and, of course, because of the spectacular Synagogue.

In the pictures you can also see one of the nearly 2500 nasoni we have in Rome, little fountains that distribute fresh drinking water (cold even in August!) all day long. Needless to say that I’m the highest fan of nasoni; apart from monuments, I think they are the thing that I like the most in the city.
