Midway between Turin and Milan in Italy’s northwest Piedmont region stands the small city of Casale Monferrato, which holds a small jewel of a synagogue, in a colorful baroque style verging on rococo.
The congregation counts 26 members, most living in Milano and Turin.
The small but vibrant Jewish museum, is in a labyrinth of rooms adjoining the sanctuary, they are filled with Torah crowns, menorahs, and other Jewish objects.
The museum is contributing to the education of the largely non-Jewish community that surrounds it. School groups come through regularly.
