Rita Ranzato, an art restorer, uses a scalpel to take away layers of old paint from a stuccoed wall inside the 1575 Italian Schola Synagogue in Venice, northern Italy, Wednesday, June 1, 2022. Venice’s Jewish ghetto is considered the first in Europe and one of the first in the world, and a new effort is underway to preserve its 16th century synagogues for the Jews who have remained and tourists who pass through.
