It’s hard to imagine what life was like for, say, an ordinary Jewish merchant at the time of Grand Duke Cosimo III de’Medici (1670–1723). Did he wake up to hostility? Acceptance? What privileges and obstacles did he confront? What did he eat, wear and sing? What was it like for a Jew to wander outside the Ghetto across the city and interact in such a Catholic town?
