The Jewish Heritage Museum of Padua gives evidence of the presence of the Askenazi community, the earliest settled in Padua starting from the 14th century. It is located inside the Great Ashkenazi Synagogue. The building, restored in Neoclassical style, is a wonderful frame for the precious collection of silver objects and fabrics from the 16th and 17th centuries and the video installation "Generation comes, Generation goes" by Denis Brotto on ten of the most famous representatives of the Jewish life in Padua.
The Italian Synagogue , built in 1548 and currently in use ,is the very heart of the ghetto also nowadays.
The ancient restored Cemetery, in Via Isidoro Wiel, is a suggestive garden of graves dating from the 15th century. They tell us the presence of great charismatic men, e.g. Meir Katzenellenbogen, his son Samuel , Anselmo Dal Banco and Abraham Catalan.
