The contrast between the Roman Jews and other major Jewish centers can be illustrated by the divergent rates of intermarriage. 17 The Italian racial campaign, which effectively revoked the emancipation of Italian Jewry achieved during 1848–70, thus constituted a profound rupture in the modern history of Italy, interrupting a century-long pattern of growing social integration.
