Venice featured the first European community to be segregated by religious belief. The concept of the ghetto was born here Venice, set up by Venice’s rulers in 1516 on the site of an old metal foundry. The neighborhood took its name, Ghetto, from “Getar”, a word in the Venetian dialect meaning “to smelt.” The 5,000 Jews of Venice were forced to pay the salaries of the guards who locked them in from midnight to 5 a.m. and patrolled the canal circling the area. These eight-story houses are the tallest buildings in Venice and squeezed the overcrowded population.
