In occasion of RavennaMosaico 2017, the seat of Ravenna of the Polo Museale dell'Emilia Romagna hosts the new event Epifanie contemporanee. Opere di Marco De Luca nei monumenti ariani (Contemporary Epiphanies. Works by Marco De Luca in the Arian monuments) inside two of the most powerful and suggestive late antique monuments of Ravenna: the Arian Baptistery and the Mausoleum of Theoderic. The artist Marco De Luca exhibits the two site specific installations Sudari (at the Baptistery, 2017 unpublished) and Chimera (at the Mausoleum, 2015) with the aim of harmonizing the long-standing dilemma between sculpture and mosaic in those monuments without or with little mosaic, giving birth to the epiphany of a feeling of presence despite the absence.
