Piazza is the vital heart of Roman Judaism. A small area in the centre of a big city with a difficult and ancient history. Piazza is what Roman Jews call the ghetto area where they were restricted for three hundred years, and which was the scene of the tragic round-ups by the Nazis in 1943. Interviews with the people of Piazza reveal a lively present and a past of pain and pride, reconstructed through the gaze of the daughter of one of the main protagonists. It is a historical and intimate journey to discover a world that, seen from the inside, appears closer to us, a particular Jewish reality that symbolises the world diaspora.
