Stories of the Ghetto / Zgodbe Ghetta
The omnibus of the final year of the HiLoVv project deals with the complex and delicate topic of the contemporary Venetian neighbourhood called the Ghetto, which with its specific history gave name to the notion of the Ghetto as we know it today. The Ghetto celebrates its 500th anniversary in 2016.

Discovering the Hidden Live(r)s of Venice
The omnibus Stories of the Ghetto was made in the frame of the third edition of the HiLoVv - Hidden Live(r)s of Venice educational project, which has been supported by the European Union in the form of a Lifelong Learning - Intensive Programmes grant.
