Fausto Levi Museum in Soragna

Via Cavour, 43 - 43019 Soragna

A Jewish community established itself in Soragna when Jews were expelled from Parma in 1555 and from Piacenza in 1570.

In front of the city’s castle, one can find the oratory dating from 1584, since then transformed into a synagogue and Jewish museum. You’ll find there a great collection of crafted objects, as well as documents retracing Jewish life in this region since the sixteenth century.
