House 770 – Orthodoxy in Milan

Worldwide there are about ten houses identical to each other and built looking similar to a first one which is located at 770 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn (New York). Those houses are the offices of the Jewish orthodox movement Lubavitch – Chabad. The Lubavitcher are one of the largest communities of Orthodox Jews.

In memory of the devoted rabbi who lived in the first building, the Lubavitcher began to see his home a veritable holy site and began to build some clones in other parts on the planet. The only house model “770” in Europe is located right in Milan and precisely at via Poerio 35, almost at the corner with Piazza Fratelli Bandiera.

The house, which should be the “home of the Messiah”, is on three levels and shows typical northern European walls, with three “eardrums” and windows framed in stone. A pure example of Flemish Renaissance style.

Unfortunately for obvious reasons it is not possible to visit it inside.
