“A Starry Sky Above the Roman Ghetto” Virtual Film Screening and Special Event

February 19 @ 7:30 pm - February 21 @ 7:30 pm

When Sofia finds an old photograph and letter in a neglected suitcase, she is determined she will uncover the truth and tell the little girl’s story, bringing together an interfaith group of teenagers. The past interlaces with the present as they undertake this journey through the history of Rome’s Jewish ghetto and the fate of a little girl, in this story about the importance of memory and coexistence.

On Monday, February 21, 2022 at 12:00 p.m., join us virtually for a presentation of “The Jews of Rome: A Journey Through Twenty-Two Centuries of Jewish Life in Rome,” by guide Micaela Pavoncello.
