Snapshot: Ravenna’s Mosaics

I’ve been getting behind with the blogging lately, so here’s another snapshot. My class at the University of Bologna had to switch times because there were too many people in the room and it was a fire hazard. Because the time of the class switched, my schedule got mixed up and I’ve been playing catch-up in a literature class which I just started. I also went on a weekend trip to Oslo this weekend which was incredible, and I’ll be sure to write about later this week, but for now here’s Ravenna!

    1. Hi Jamie, it’s incredible to see how small the mosaics are and to imagine how much time and effort went into making these huge ceilings and walls covered in mosaics. I’ll write more on Ravenna later, but it’s definitely a city to visit for its incredible artwork.
