Ravenna patrimonio mondiale dell'UNESCO
The international heritage of Ravenna, city of mosaics, has been recognised by UNESCO. Eight monuments built in its 1500-years-long history have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
What makes Ravenna's monuments a treasure for all humanity is described as follows: "The early Christian and Byzantine religious buildings in Ravenna are of remarkable significance by virtue of the supreme artistry of the mosaic art that they contain. The buildings provide furthermore crucial evidence of artistic and religious relationships and contacts at an important period of European cultural history".
