In other Italian Torah Ark curtains from the late 16th and early 17th century, the general use of embroidered architectural gates is used. This is the case of the Olivetti-Montefiore Torah Curtain made in Pesaro in 1620, decorated with gilt and silver thread embroidery on silk by Rachel Olivetti of Pesaro, on the occasion of her marriage with Judah Montefiore (the two family coats of arms appear below the text). Its focal point is a poem, embroidered between two arched columns, adorned with intricate vegetal and floral ornaments. The text starts with a verse from Exodus 40:21: ‘… And he brought the ark inside the Tabernacle. Then he put up the curtain for screening…’ and also quotes the ‘everlasting portals’ of Psalm 24:7.
