The Napoleone Jerusum Residency

The Napoleone Jesurum Residency honors the memory of Beit Venezia’s first President. In collaboration with his family, every year we invite a writer to live in Venice and write about the Ghetto, that “Leo”, who survived the Fascist persecution, envisioned as a place for the future as much as a site of memory.

The first resident in 2018 was the distinguished Israeli playwright Motti Lerner, who shared some of his time and writing with Italian Jewish author Laura Forti
