The church of san francisco

The Church of San Francisco is very close to Dante's tomb. The church dates from the eighteenth century. This would be trivial in a country like Italy, were it not for the flooding of the the crypt. Indeed, from the crypt, where I suggest going straight away, you can admire a floor covered with Roman mosaics. During my stay in Ravenna, I particularly liked this: the old styles and new juxtaposed, always united in a building. Rather than bulldoze everything and build on the ruins as is being done with the nearest building, with little concern for consistency of style. There is also a humourous note, so to speak, with goldfish swimming in the flooded crypt, the guardians of the ancient mosaics below.
