Palazzo Salvadori is a palazzo in Trento, northern Italy, one of the first examples of Renaissance civil architecture in the city. It was built by the Lombard master Lucio Tosani, during the reign of Prince-Bishop Bernardo Clesio, starting in 1515. Designed by the architect Lucio Tosani, the building is placed on the foundation of the old synagogue of the small Jews community presented in the city.[1] For a long time belonged to the family of Trautmannsdorf, now the building presentes two main doors on which there are still two medallions, dating from the first half of the eighteenth century, painted by Francesco Oradini; representing the Martyrdom and Glory of the Child Simonino from Trento. The child, who is falsely believed the victim of a Jewish ritual in the Easter of 1475, caused the expulsion of Jewish families from Trento. Simonino was venerated as Blessed until 1965, but after the second Vatican council the worship was banded.[2] Around the mid-18th century above the two portals were placed the marble reliefs by Francesco Oradini depicting the martyrdom and glory of the child Simone (Simon of Trent). This boy was the presumed ritual victim of the Jews on Easter 1475. The mansion rises on the site where the synagogue of the small Jewish community of Trento used to stand.
