Apr 27, 2009

Presentation of the history of the Romianiotes by Vincent Giordano, photographer and Fulbright scholar…

Romaniotes by Vincent Giordano

Romaniotes are among the oldest Jewish communities in the world today. In their long history they withstood the rise and fall of the Roman and Byzantine and Ottoman empires and thrived in their Greek homeland.They have their own unique customs and language, a dialect of Greek with some phrases from Hebrew and Turkish. However, little is known of their history and their rich tradition now stands on the verge of extinction. With the use of video and photographs, Vincent Giordano presents the rituals, customs and traditions of the Romaniotes community in Ioannina. 

The Fulbright Foundation - Greece awards grants to both Greek and US citizens to enable them to study, teach or conduct research in either the US or Greece. For more information on the Fulbright Program in Greece
