Architectural Significance: Artistic Decoration
The synagogue’s interior was colorful and profusely decorated with mural paintings and reliefs depicting various scenes. Even today one can notice fragments of Hebrew inscriptions covering the walls. The aforementioned reliefs showed symbolic animals next to which there were inscriptions engraved in plaster. There was, for instance, a leopard with the phrase “be bold as a leopard”, an eagle with the words “be light as an eagle”, or a lion with the sentence “be strong as a lion”. All the paintings were light pastel, the color being so characteristic to the long Italian artistic tradition. Interestingly, the renovation revealed that they were not the first murals since there was another layer of paintings hidden underneath.
