Located in the heart of the medieval Giudecca in Lecce, the Jewish Museum is a place for meeting, promoting culture and dialogue, besides being a reference point for discovering the traditions and the history of the Jewish community that inhabited Lecce in the late Middle Ages. Above all the Museum's aim is to enhance the cultural heritage, by reconstructing one of the missing piece of the cultural mosaic of the medieval Lecce, paying specific attention to the local Jewish community.
From the will of the founding members of the Jewish Museum of Lecce the MAiDE art gallery was opened in 2022. It is dedicated to contemporary art and houses the works of international artists of Jewish and non-Jewish culture as well as a place for painting workshops and events.
Virtual reproduction of Lecce's Jewish quarter carried out under the regional call "measures to promote «corporate welfare» and new forms of work organization Family Friendly" and produced by Technè SAS in collaboration with the Jewish Museum of Lecce.
