Toscana Ketubah - The Great Synagogue in Florence, Italy was completed in 1882 after eight years of construction. It was inspired byt the Byzantine Church, Hagia Sofia, in Istanbul, yet shows Moorish Influences both in the interior and exterior design. The upper portion of this ketubah is based on the exterior of the synagogue, with its beautifully carved stone facade, octagonal turrets and copper dome.
The lower portion of the ketubah is based on a design motif found in the arch above the synagogue’s aron kodesh (holy ark). The color scheme is true to the original. The landscape at the top features two Italian Cypress trees, growing on hills typical to the Tuscan countryside
