The word 'ghetto' describes the area where the Jewish population of Venice was confined to live, and under curfew, from 1516 to 1797.    There are three approaches to Venice's ghetto, from the north, the south, and the east. This is the northern approach, from the Fondamenta dei Ormesini. On the far right is one of the two sentry boxes for the night guards at the bridge. The sentry boxes are holdovers from when the Jewish population was locked in this area at night.
