Battistero degli Ariani, Ravenna

Our second location on our Sunday morning tour was also the location of the contemporary mosaic installation of the CaCO³ artistic group, created for the Battistero.

This modern work aimed to ‘create a link of narration and reflection with the mosaic decorations dating from antiquity’. In this intimate space the simplicity of the composition gave an immediate empathy with the location. The detail of the drape is so subtle giving the impression of a cloth drape hanging on a rail, extending the composition from the ceiling.
