STORY

There are eight World Heritage sites in the small town of Ravenna, Italy.  The former kingdom of Ostrogoths and Byzantines sits on the eastern coast of Italy in Emiliana Romagna,  quietly and classically Italian. Pictured above is The Basilica di Sant'Apollinare in Classe. An exquisitely mosaic-ed example of an early Christian basilica, it was constructed under the supervision of Maximanius, the Bishop of Ravenna — the then capital of Byzantium's Italian empire. The pictures below are scattered from the other early Christian religious structures from all around the city, my selection focused on shape and light.
