  • It is a beautiful garden in the heart of the city of Ravenna and in the Palazzo della Provincia, of very small size with a gushing fountain ... you visit in 5 minutes. ... Then there is the crypt where exhibitions are held ... and again it will take 10 minutes for even this much reduced ... climbing above is the view over Piazza San Francesco ... Bacon from above. Admission 2 euros and thinking they are for the upkeep of the building and grounds may be fine ...

  • I'm already gone several times to visit this place and every time, I'm always amazed by the beautiful emotions that provokes me. This is a little piece of peace and perfect rigor positioned right on piazza San Francesco, one of the most beautiful squares in Ravenna, the city where I live

  • The crypt Rasponi shows a beautifully lacquered mosaic of triadic entrance with pa-movements. The crypt is composed of three compartments: to access is part of the basis of a neo-Gothic Tower; in one room there is a beautiful ball of stone with the inscription SIC VITA PENDET AB ALTO; the presbytery was intended to House a small altar for religious services. The most interesting part of the crypt is the mosaic floor, the assemblage of different fragments arranged randomly. The floor is not originally from the Palace but from class, probably from the Church of San Severo (6th century) and features ornamental motifs and figures of animals – chickens, ducks, geese, RAM heads and snakes – admirably represented in spontaneous attitudes and brightened by the use of glazes that exalt the chromatic richness. The hanging gardens originally linked Palazzo Rasponi with stables, passing over the vault constructed in 1839, now can be covered leaving the crypt and lead up to the belvedere in view of Piazza San Francesco. This is one of the most beautiful and evocative of the city of Ravenna, where you can admire mosaics of great beauty and Italian gardens. The garden is enriched by a beautiful fountain and, at the Center, has a neo-Gothic Tower and also consists of a part. Leaving the crypt you go up the ladder to the belvedere. It is often used for exhibitions and cultural events.
