Meaningful People Interview; Niccolo Matas Grave Marker Confirmed in Florence, Italy

Had a great time speaking with Nachi and Momo of Meaningful People podcast. The conversation was a little personal, a little irreverent, but even a little deep. Hope I didn’t overshare!

Nicolo Matas grave marker confirmed

Last week I discussed the remarkable story of the Jewish architect Nicolo Matas (video below), who somehow got this Star of David prominently displayed on the Santa Croce church in Florence, Italy. Lots of important people are buried in the church (Michelangelo, Machiavelli, etc.) but given that Matas was unbaptized, he could only be laid to rest in a sarcophagus outside the church, immediately outside the front steps.

In a deeply ironic way, he is now buried in front of what appears to be the world’s largest Jewish tombstone.
