Dear Madam, searching for new opportunities of work in the field of conservation of the Jewish Heritage in Europe, we found your blog proposal.
We are a little Italian Jewish Conservation firm and we worked with special dedication in the conservation of Jewish Cemetries. Till now we completely restored the 7 old cemeteries of Padua and Rovigo (North-East Italy), we were ingaged in the starting works for the conservation of the old Jewish Cemetery of Nova Gorica (Sovenija), and we are starting the works on the old Cemetery of Lugo di Romagna (Italy). We also made the catalogue of quite all the cemeteries of North-East Italy, including the one of Venice.
We'll be pleased to work in England and we are seeking for occasions in order to give our expertise and to work in sharing with other experiences in order to improve a general conservation plan for the hundreds of Jewish graveyards scattered all over Europe.
Looking forward to hear from you.
Best wishes
Gadi Luzzatto Voghera
