Tour of Dozza, between the Middle Ages and Street Art

Do not miss the chance to visit Dozza, one of “Italy’s most beautiful villages" where medieval history and contemporary art meet.

Take a tour through the original medieval village, enclosed within the authentic 15th-century walls. Walking along its old streets among the ancient houses, admire the more than 90 murals embellishing the façades, painted by great contemporary artists during the Biennial of the Painted Wall (Biennale del Muro Dipinto), which, with every edition, has transformed and continues to transform the village into a fully-fledged open-air art gallery. Finally, round off your tour by heading up to the Rocca Sforzesca where you can visit the connected museum and, in the dungeons, the Emilia-Romagna Regional Wine Shop (Enoteca Regionale).

Combine art, history and culinary culture on this unique and unforgettable tour.
