Ravenna Mosaici - Mosaics on Instagram: "Sapete dove si trova l’unico ritratto dell’Imperatrice Galla Placidia presente a Ravenna? 🤔 Vi diamo un indizio: non si tratta del Mausoleo che porta il suo nome! ✨ Tra i diversi frammenti del portale marmoreo all’ingresso della Basilica di San Giovanni Evangelista, si può notare la figura di Galla Placidia. ✨ Nella cuspide è rappresentata insieme ai soldati, mentre nella lunetta è raffigurata la visione di Galla Placidia: nella vigilia della consacrazione della Basilica, l’Imperatrice sta pregando davanti all’altare quando improvvisamente appare san Giovanni Evangelista che, prima di scomparire, lascia un sandalo pontificale come sua consacrazione. Conoscevate questa curiosità? 🤗💖 • • • • • #ravennamosaici #mosaics #gallaplacidia #ravenn
