In 1624 the construction of a ghetto was decreed in Ferrara and two years later the Jews were confined to it. The Jews were forced to be present at conversionist sermons and Jewish physicians were forbidden to attend on Christians. A similar state of affairs persisted throughout the 17th and 18th centuries for the approximately 300 Jewish families in Ferrara. From time to time the situation was exacerbated by mob attacks on the ghetto (1648, 1651, 1705, 1747, 1754) and by a blood libel charge in 1721.
