The oldest ghetto in the world is to be found in Venice. Today only a few Jews live here but once more than 5,000 people lived in the Ghetto in confined spaces.
The Venetian Ghetto was instituted on 29 March 1516, though political restrictions on Jewish rights and residences existed before that date.
Today, the Ghetto is still a center of Jewish life in the city. The Jewish Community of Venice, that counts 500 people, is still culturally very active.
