OVS Arts of Italy is not only a project which creatively combines the languages of art and fashion. Its main aim is to bring the Italian artistic heritage closer to the OVS community through an original story. That's why OVS Art News items have been created: curiosities, anecdotes and ideas for a more in-depth acquaintance with Italian art to enable you to rediscover, enjoy and appreciate the extraordinary beauty under the eyes of us all.
As well as the famous Mausoleum, the city of Ravenna has another extraordinary treasure, especially in the light of its stunning mosaics: the basilica of San Vitale. The oriental influence often found in Ravenna’s architecture, has a dominant role in the external structure and also the decoration of the interior mosaics. And it is due to the artistic and spiritual value of the basilica, which is UNESCO World Heritage Site, that it is the only Italian church to be ranked as one of the world’s top 19 important holy sites.
