|Ravenna, Italy's Piazza del Popolo, so Italian you can almost smell the Ciechetti.|
|Ravenna's San Vitale apse.|
|Sant' Apollinare Nuovo mosaics, a sort of "who's who" of the Theodoric court. |
(The curve is an optical distortion required by the narrowness of the nave.)
|Ravenna's San Vitale. Notice the slope down to the entrance, indicating how much the|
structure has subsided in the past 1500 years.
|San Vitale's mosaic of the court |
of the Byzantine Emperor, Justinian I.
|And on a nearby panel, |
his lovely wife, Theodora.
