I delight to do your will, O my God: infact your law is within my heart.
I love you so much that how you ask me to be is naturally part of who I am. (Sandy’s understanding – with the help of the Holy Spirit, the good angels and forgiveness through Jesus.)
Dozza, a historic village which dates back more than a thousand years, is 40km from Bologna. Dozza is known for its festival of the painted walls. Every two years in September famous national and international artists leave permanent works on the walls of the town. (A great idea!) I will share some of these in their street setting and others on their own. Come let’s go through the streets.
Dozza keeps you guessing because suddenly there are great walls, a medieval castle…
There are dungeons and trap doors. Ghastly prison rooms with ancient graffiti. Then more pleasant views from the top.
Dozza. A pleasant place with free parking and paintings to view. A special place to be. Thank you for walking with us. Let me leave you with these thoughts about art:
Art is not what you see, but what you (the artist) make others see.
Edgar Degas 1834-1917 A French impressionist artist famous for his pastel drawings and oil paintings.
There is no healthier drug than creativity.
Nayyirah Waheed (African American poet and author.)

I absolutely love seeing street art, and your photos certainly did show it well. The empty picture frames in Rocca di Dozza’s reading room are kind of sad to see. There’s something lonely about an empty frame. but the castle looks very interesting. Thank you for sharing Dozza!
Ah, my pleasure. I didn’t notice those empty frames. Yes it does have potential to be filled. How observant you are. Dozza was an inspiration. I wish some towns in England could do this.

This might be my favorite post yet! The video with the bells made me incredibly joyous and all the street artwork is so divine. Then you hit me with a medieval castle! Just wow!
Thank you. So much is unexpected. I would go back but nothing can take the place of one’s first encounter when it is something so special as that. So happy the video with the bells made you joyous! Sandy
