Let's follow your way and use Windows 10 package for OpenSSH.

I deleted all what I have done before:
rm C:\ProgramData\ssh
rm C:\Program Files\OpenSSH
rm C:\Users\nicola\.ssh
rm C:\Users\adam1\.ssh

. I rebooted and start all clean. Install OpenSSH Client and Server from 
windows GUI.

. Start-service sshd

. p at deb4> sshd adam1 at domus => does not work

. Stop-service sshd

. Edit C:\ProgramData\ssh\sshd_config and comment these 2 lines:
# Match Group administrators
#       AuthorizedKeysFile 

. Start-service sshd

. p at deb4> sshd at adam1@domus => IT WORKS

. Now I need to add my public key

. Windows Powershell does not find ssh-keygen

. LogOut + LogIn

. adam1 at doums> ssh-keyget -t rsa   (RETURN serveral times, i don't put 
secret password)

. p at deb4> scp id_rsa.pub-p at deb4 adam1 at domus:.ssh/

. adam1 at dmus> vim authorized_keys
=> here I add the file id_rsa.pus-p at deb4

. Stop-service sshd

. Start-service sshd

p at deb4> ssh adam1 at domus

There might be an issue with permissions on the files .
But on this release there is no script to check them.
