"Zetto" was the name of the quartier of the east europe jews (the venetian native jews can live where they wished)and means nothing, just a name for a place.
The east europe jews cannot spell the letter "z" and calling it "ghetto".

1400: Yankele:"I am an jew immigrant from Polland , can I rent a house here?"
Bepin: "no, you must go in the zetto : third channel on the right."
Bepi"Zetto, Zetto, the third channel on the right and youll'find the quartier. Then ask to the rabbis"
Yankele" Shit ! I cannot spell this..ketto, ghetto..ach!"

A horribly run "city" where Jews were kept during World War II before being sent off to concentration/death camps. People who say they live in a "ghetto" don't know what the real things are like, they just think they are cool.
