Around the Mausoleum of Theodoric (see focus), Uneesco World Heritage monument of the city, there is a 14-hectare-large green area designed in 2006 by architect Boris Podrecca, considered as one of the pioneers of Postmodernism by many critics.

The area, known as PARCO TEODORICO, is one of the main parks of the city and is much frequented by young people and families to do sports or be in the open air.

The park features large green lawns delimited by walkways perfect for jogging, wooded areas, children’s playgrounds, a marble track, a basketball court and a rugby field.

Then, there is of course a break area, with a restaurant and toilets.

At the centre of the “monumental perspective” is the Mausoleum of Theodoric, on which all the visual lines of who walks in the park meet.

All the natural elements of the park recall the typical characteristics of the territory of Ravenna, as the strength of the countryside and the reference to the past of Ravenna as a city related to water.

At the bottom of the park are some bodies of water hosting various animal species, such as tortoises, fishes, gooses, ducks and seagulls, and that in summer fill up with charming lotus flowers

In the area, next to the Mausoleum, is also Parco della Rimembranza, created in the 1920s to remember the people of Ravenna who fell during World War I.

FOCUS

The Mausoleum of Theodoric

The Mausoleum of Theodoric is undoubtedly the most famous burial monument of Late Antiquity, declared Unesco World Heritage monument.

Built by the will of Theodoric as its own burial place in 520 AD, the structure of this building skillfully blends western influences to the Roman tradition, giving life to a melting pot of the ancient Roman population and the Goth “invaders”.
