Cimitero Ebraico

The Jewish cemetery of Conegliano, inaugurated in 1545 on the Cabalan hill, one of the most evocative and panoramic areas of the city, was used until 1882-84, when Jews were allowed to bury their dead in a reserved section in the municipal cemetery. Abandoned for decades, also due to the extinction of the local Jewish community, and reduced to severe decay, it has recently been recovered by the archaeological group of Conegliano. On the occasion of the restoration, the new entrance from Viale Gorizia was created: a steep climb of 110 steps, named after Marco Grassini, a Jew, mayor of Conegliano in the 19th century. The original entrance (no longer existing) was on top of the hill where the foundations of a small chapel were found, used to rest the body before burial.

In the cemetery there are about 130 tombstones, mostly oriented towards Jerusalem, built with sandstone or limestone depending on financial availability. The oldest epigraphs, mostly in Hebrew, show passages from the Bible. The more recent ones, from the nineteenth century, are generally in Italian. Some tombstones have decorations with leaves, false columns or with the indication of the family of the deceased, each of which is distinguished by a different symbolic coat of arms: the rooster with moon, stars and ear refers to the Luzzato family; the tower with two rampant lions to Grassini, the squirrel to Goneian or Conian.
