SAN MICHELE IN BOSCO
Bologna City | Attractions | Churches
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.
The church (Piazzale di San Michele in Bosco) is open to the public every day from:
9 am to 12 pm and from 4 to 7 pm.
The library (Via Putti 1) is open on:
Monday and Tuesday from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm;
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9.30 am to 3 pm;
Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm.
The Studio Putti (Via Putti 1) is open only by appointment
