Culture at the Foot of the Alps
Members of the delegation began their trip by attending the Friday night service at the beautiful Turin Synagogue, where they were welcomed by Rabbi Ariel Di Porto. Following the service, guests enjoyed Shabbat dinner hosted by Ermanno Tedeschi at his gallery.
The participants visited Palazzo Madama and the Museo Egizio, and dined at the home of Bianca and Arturo Tedeschi in the hills of Turin. At a lunch held in the Palazzo Sella, home of TAU supporter Nicolo Sella, former Senator of Rome and heir to one of the oldest families of the Italian aristocracy, guests met Michelangelo Pistoletto, a preeminent contemporary artists and master of the Italian Arte Povera.
Proceeds from the trip will go toward scholarships for students who are part of an excellence program at TAU's Department of Art History to give them the opportunity to participate in an in situ research seminar in Europe.
