Some history of the Museo Ebraico di Ferrara
After its opening, the Jewish community president Gianpaolo Minerbi, approached the town’s archbishop about transferring the oversize iron keys to the former ghetto from the cathedral museum to the new institution.

The prelate consented and Minerbi became the only Jew to cross Ferrara’s spacious piazza with these weighty objects in hand. They now are on display at the Jewish museum inside their own labeled glass case.

But the keys, the archbishop emphasized, are only on loan.
