What a beautiful building with a lovely history. An "Emancipation Synagogue" - I'd never heard that term before, but it was explained by the docent that this synagogue was funded by a single Florentine, David Levi, after the Jews of Florence were free to leave the ghetto (and the ghetto was destroyed and replaced with the Piazza della Republicca). Slightly off the beaten track, and very well protected for obvious security reasons, this synagogue is gorgeous to behold - both inside and out. Thank God it survived the Nazis (though all of its congregants didn't) and the flood of 1966. A must visit - at least for Jews!
