Arriving in ancient Rome over 2,000 years ago, the Jewish communities of Italy have retained their identity throughout the millennia. This book traces their recreation of community, focusing on their economic, intellectual, and social lives, as they moved from south to north. Over the centuries, the localised Italian groups were reinforced with the arrival of German, Provencal, Sephardic, and most recently Ashkenazi and Middle Eastern Jews. Surviving religious persecution, ghetto-isation, and the Holocaust, the Jews contributed to Italian society when they could. Supplemented by maps, illustrations, sidebars, and primary sources, the book is a scholarly yet popular overview of a minority group that is proudly Italian and equally proud to be Jewish.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A thoroughly researched and engagingly written presentation.--Book News, Inc.
"Few Jewish communities in the Diaspora are as old as the one in Italy, and that's one of the reasons Reguer's account is well worth reading. She takes us on a journey, full of promise, peril and renewal, that begins during the Roman empire and ends in present-day Italy. It's quite a trip."--Sheldon Kirshner, The Times of Israel, 5 Feb 2017 "The Times of Israel "
