The Jewish Heritage of Padua wishes to be close to its visitors and supporters by offering the possibility of watching some videos, in this special moment of our lives when entering museums or cultural sites is either not allowed or in some cases partially permitted.
At present, we can propose three of them:
A Virtual Tour of the temporary exhibition “Light over Darkness”, inaugurated on 29th October 2020, which will close on 31st May 2021. It narrates the story of Hanukkah and of the nine branch- lamps reinterpreted by contemporary artists like Arnaldo Pomodoro and Emanuele Luzzatti. The Hanukkyot belong to the collection of the Museum of Lights in Casale Monferrato.
“Three stories”, created on the Holocaust Memorial Day 2021: memory between awareness and oblivion. It is a short documentary produced thanks to Filippo Tognazzo and Gina Cavalieri with Sergio Marchesini’s music. Three Stories collects the memories of three women who personally lived the Shoà like Lia, or through family members such as AnnaLisa and Sara. Special thanks to these extraordinary women who chose to remember and to Ottavia Piccolo who enriched the video by her voice.
Esedra, a re-exploration of the video installation “Generation comes, generation goes”, which can be seen as an enveloping screening at the Jewish Heritage of Padua. The film Director, Denis Brotto says:” I wanted to tell the life of the Jewish Community of Padua through some of its most relevant members, from 1400 to the present: rabbis, mayors, rectors, people who stood out and whose memory is still alive today. This work is ideally the story of all the women and men who were part of the history of the Jewish Community”.
