Italy, partner of the Hebrew Fragments in European Libraries project

The study and publication of the largest of the European collections of the fragments (estimated 15000 fragments) has been carried out for the past twenty five years by the 'Italian Genizah' project. Various universities and archives are involved in the project which already resulted in publication of several catalogues and monographs on Hebrew fragments. Its head is Prof. Mauro Perani, University of Bologna, Dipartimento di Storie e Metodi per la Conservazione dei Beni Culturali, Ravenna. The project has been largely funded by the state as far as the salaries of researchers are concerned.
