Famous all over the world for its stunning early-Christian and Byzantine mosaics preserved inside the Unesco World Heritage monuments, Ravenna proudly and bravely fosters the tradition of mosaic art thanks to the many local schools and mosaic artists.
The city jealously guards the techniques, skills and methods for the production of mosaic.
This ancient art, for which the city has showed a new interest since the first restoration campaigns in the 19th century, flourished in the last century thanks to the genius and creativity of various architects and artists, thus strengthening an incomparable excellence.
In their studios scattered around the historical centre and in close proximity to it, artists use and elaborate the so-called “Ravennese” traditional technique of mosaic – developed in the times of the Romans and of Galla Placidia, Theodoric and Justinian – in new ways and forms.
Furnishings, frames, mirrors, jewellery, copies of ancient masterpieces, ornaments, portraits and custom elements are just some of the works that you can find in the mosaic shops in Ravenna.
A special itinerary in the streets of the city that will allow you to learn more about the history and development of this art and discover the techniques and beauty of it.
Most of the workshops offer you the opportunity to challenge yourself and take part in a course, thanks to which you will learn the techniques and create your personal work to bring back home – an indelible memory of your trip to Ravenna.
