Cimitero Via Orfeo1The Bologna medieval Jewish cemetery was recovered during archaeological excavations between 2012 and 2014. Destroyed in 1569, then long disappeared, it hosts 408 graves of men, women and children and is the largest one known in Italy so far and the second in Europe after York. In these graves, personal ornaments made of gold, silver, bronze, hard stones and amber were found.

The present Jewish cemetery is part of the city’s “Certosa” and is accessed through the church in Via della Certosa.
