Il Ghetto di Venezia nel reportage di Goffredo Pariselock_openopen access
A journey through the Venetian Ghetto written by a young Goffredo Parise. This paper aims to explore the relationships between this account – part of the early production of the author’s travel literature –, some elements of the history of the world’s oldest Jewish Ghetto, and the representations and stereotypes in the literary tradition that contributed to make this place and its inhabitants an ‘imagined community’. Finally, this essay explores Parise’s report in light of Rilke’s short story about Ghetto taken from Stories of God.
