Moreover, every Friday from July 11th to August 22nd at 6pm, the Soprintendenza ai Beni Architettonici e Paesaggistici offers free guided tours titled "Quattro passi nell’arte", allowing people to discover the Mausoleum of Theodoric, the Basilica of St. Apollinare in Classe, the National Museum of Ravenna and the Arian Baptistry. 

The program includes artistic, musical and literary events and initiatives dedicated to contemporary mosaics, plus a video-mapping projection which will be screened from July 21st to 23rd in the Baptistry of Neon.
