Ravenna Mosaic Tour
The “secret” of mosaic stays in its brightening, conveyed by glassy and golden tesserae, with its capacity to catch the light and then spread it everywhere. Thanks to this, in addition to the high quality of the technique, we can experience the great atmospheres of Basilica di San Vitale and Galla Placidia’s Mausoleum. In the first one, the images are placards which talk to the community and acclaim the authorities, while the second one discloses a private dimension in a nocturnal and vibrating ambiance, which reveals the intimate condition of Empress’s soul. On the other hand, the archaeological site of Domus dei Tappeti di Pietra (stony carpets) tells us about the household aspect of aristocratic Byzantines, showing the wonderful mosaic flooring and structure of a VI century’s palace.
