San Michele in Bosco
Museums | Genus
Large belvedere overlooking Bologna, the San Michele in Bosco site, which today houses the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute, dominates the underlying city like an ancient lord dominating his castle. The Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio in Bologna has been managing its monumental areas since 2007. The church, crypt, octagonal cloister, library, the Studio Putti and the Sala Vasari have thus become part of the itinerary of Genus Bononiae. Museums in the City.
