The Synagogue of Asti presents a simple neoclassic exterior with an entrance framed by four columns which hold a gable bearing a good wish message. Internally there are three naves with traditional arched ceilings. At the end of the presbytery is the Aran or Holy Arc, made of ebony by the famous Bonzanigo in 1809: it is a wall cupboard with eight gold sculptured panels. Each panel has a different symbol. The rooms that were once the winter temple host a museum with the liturgical items and other utensils to testify the Hebrew presence in Asti and the multimedia museum “Una finestra sulla storia”.
