Some history of the Great Synagogue of Trieste
The monumental Israelite Temple of Trieste was built between 1908 and 1912 , and bears the brilliant hallmark of architects Ruggero and Arduino Berlam. The Temple was unveiled in 1912 in the presence of city authorities, and it replaced the four smaller Synagogues that previously existed.

Different architectural styles successfully blend in this building, whose essence is represented by four powerful marble pillars supporting an imposing central dome. It has been considered the most outstanding Synagogue in Europe. Its vast interior is a reminder to future generations of the importance of the Jewish community in Trieste which, at the turn of the century, used to count 6000 members.
