“Italy’s Great Monuments: Sparkling Ravenna Mosaics”
WEBINAR RECORDING | “Italy’s Great Monuments: Sparkling Ravenna Mosaics”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
Join me for this free webinar which will explore the fascinating history of Ravenna, Italy. A history that shaped the city’s most recognizable artistic marvels, its glorious mosaics. No medium better embodies the glory and mystery of the Byzantine Empire than does this painstaking technique of inserting tiny-colored-glass tiles—or tesserae—into wet plaster to produce figurative and decorative imagery. In fact, the basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna houses the world’s most famous mosaic depicting the Empress Theodora.
The webinar recording consists of a 45 minute lecture.
