Several Italian principalities welcomed Jews of many backgrounds, integrating them into Jewish communities that had begun in ancient Roman times. The author traces the history of cities that became their homes, along with their travels and accomplishments. Finally, Jewish Time-Travel explores Venice, past and present, with a visit to its famous Ghetto."--Jacket."@en ;
