The Great Synagogue of Rome

Year Built: 1904

Location: Rome, Italy

Architect: Osvaldo Armanni, Vincenzo Costa 

Standing alongside the Tiber River the Great Synagogue of Rome stands in what used to be the Jewish ghetto. Palm trees continue from the landscaping onto the exterior decoration of the Armanni and Costa designed building, and the interior, with its eclectic feel, seems to take inspiration from the appearance of surrounding Christian church interiors, pieced together with ancient Roman ruins.
