Mausoleo di Teodorico (Sito UNESCO)

Via delle Industrie, 14, Ravenna
The Mausoleum of Theodoric was built around the 520AD, by King Theodoric who was still alive, in the ancient Goth area. The current structure of the mausoleum is divided into two decagonal orders, one above the other, both made from large blocks of Istria stone. The upper floor is finished with a circular frame and decorative pattern in "tenaglia" design which is shaped like pincers. The monument is covered by a monolith of great size and twelve double pitched trusses.

The Mausoleum of Theodoric is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
