THE SPANISH SCHOLA capienza 300 people - no heating
The Spanish Schola, founded about 1580, but rebuilt on the first half of 17th century. The biggest of the Venetian synagogues is of great scenographic impact. people go upstairs in a wide double staircase that leads to a wide cultual room exalted by a very high elliptic women's gallery. Always with the by-focus effect, the stylistic grace shows the hand of a wise architect and, as for the Levantine Schola, the thought goes to Longhena, whose stylistic tract can be also read in the smart planning of the 'Aron ha-Kodesh in multicoloured marble.
