I first heard about Dozza in the book “I Broghi Piu Belli D’Italia” (The beautiful small towns of Italy). The medieval town is only about 30 minutes by car away from Bologna.
I was interested in going to Dozza for two reasons: the town is covered in Murals and is pften refered to an open-air museum and the Enoteca Regionale dell’ Emilia Romagna, which is a combination wine muesuem, shop and bar.
The town has “Festival of Painted Walls” every two years where are artist descend on the city and put up new art work so the town is constantly changing.
Dozza is definitely worth a day trip to wander around the tiny town and see the huge amount incredible art covering most the walls and archways
