The Biennial of the Painted Wall is an exhibition of paintings on the outside walls of the houses. It began in the sixties and has turned the village of Dozza into an open-air museum.
The Painted Wall is an event in which artists come to the village every two years, to express their art.
The event is unique in that the artists paint in front of the public and that their works relate to the history of the village and the surrounding hills. From 1960 to today, over 200 artists have participated in the Biennial.
Since 2007, the Biennial has also extended to the hamlet of Toscanella. Even if murals are the preferred form of art in Dozza, in Toscanella space is given to writers and street artists.
The works are always visible along the streets of the village. Paintings removed from the walls and any sketches related to the murals are placed in the Rocca Sforzesca, in Dozza.
