Ravenna (Italy), capital city of the homonymous province in Emilia-Romagna. It is the largest and historically most important city in Romagna.
Ravenna was the capital three times: of the Western Roman Empire (402-476), of the Kingdom of the Ostrogoths (493-553) and of the Byzantine Exarchate (568-751). For this luminous past, the complex of the first Christian monuments of Ravenna has been included, since 1996, in the list of Italian heritage sites of humanity by UNESCO, as a serial site "Early Christian Monuments of Ravenna".
