Vessillo Israelitico


VESSILLO ISRAELITICO , Italian Jewish monthly review founded in 1875, superseding Educatore Israelita. It was edited until its closure in 1921 by Rabbi Flaminio Servi and then by his son Ferruccio. Imbued with an Italian national revival vision of Italian Judaism, the review – especially when the editor was Flaminio Servi – opposed the penetration of the Zionist movement's influence among the ranks of Italian Jewry. In this way, the Vessillo Israelitico took sharp issue with the Corriere Israelitico and with Israel, which supported Zionism. The effects of World War i (and last but not least the Balfour Declaration) brought about the end of that specific cultural environment within Italian Judaism from which Vessillo drew its readers.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
