Mosaics/Mosaici

Today we took the train to Ravenna, and beautiful Italy delivered yet again … we saw the most wonderful mosaics. Ravenna is not far from Bologna – about an hour and a half on the regional train, and is a world heritage site. Have a look at the photos …  Dante Alighieri (1265 – 1321) is buried here. Our school is named after him. He wrote The Divine Comedy in the dialect of Florence, and the modern Italian language is based on the Italian he used… It was very special for me to be photographed here!

Oggi siamo andati in treno a Ravenna e abbiamo visto i mosaici bellissimi. La citta’ e’ forse un’ora e mezza di treno da Bologna ed e’ un patrimonio dell’umanita’ – guardate le foto! Dante Alighieri e’ sepolto qui e la nostra scuola e’ chiamata in ricordo di lui. Scrisse la Divina Commedia nel dialetto di Firenze, e la lingua moderna dell’Italia e’ basata sull’italiano che usava … E’ stato molto importante per me aver fatta una foto qua!
