There are many souls and many are the secrets that hide its streets. A special one is enclosed in the heart of the Jewish Ghetto, behind a heavy wooden door. What is now a charming open space loft of more than 110sqm on the ground floor of a typical Bolognese building, until a few years ago study of one of the greatest painters of the last 100 years, Concetto Pozzati
