Some history of the Italian Scola
Built in 1575, by Italian jews who migrated from the south, on top of some apartments in the same square as the German synagogue. The Italian Synagogue has a cupola, barely visible from the square outside, and a portico with columns marking it's entrance. Inside, there's another exquisitely carved wooden ark of the covenant, housing the Torah.
