- "Ravenna is renown worldwide for its monuments, exceptionally conserved although reworked through time, and for its unique widespread of mosaics in the Mediterranean. Starting from an updated load of studies and researches, this volume tries to avoid a simplification in the perceiving of the Ravenna phenomenon: Ravenna becoming Byzantine. This volume is the result of new studies and of a systematic photographic campaign that has documented the whole artistic heritage of the city and of its territories from the origins to the end of the Middle Ages. In this work are gathered - summarized and clearly explained in their urban context - the results of the most recent researches on Ravenna monuments by the major world scholars of the last 50 years."--Barnesandnoble.com.
