    Campo del Ghetto or Ghetto Square in Venice, Italy. During the time of the Serenissima, the Jewish community had been confined in this square and was allowed to leave it only during day time.

    Due to war, in 1509 a great number of Jews fled to Venice. To keep an eye on these new arrivals, the Serenissima decided to confine the Jewish community to an area accessible only through 2 bridges and surveilling it with guards. This are had hosted foundries that used to “gettare”, “cast” metal, and was therefore known as Ghetto.

    Since then, “ghetto” indicates an area in which a certain community is confined.
