    “With the church SS. Cosma e Damiano, dedicated to the two saints and doctors, the anargyroi, ‘who take no money’, we take the step into the sixth century. This is the first church erected in the actual monumental centre of the city, the area of the Forum and the Imperial fora, which had been the political, religious and ideological heartpiece of the Empire for more than 500 years. It contained some of the oldest and most magnificent cult buildings of the state…”

    “The single-aisled building is converted into a church without architectural alterations. Even the openings to the apse were kept. To the precious wall decoration with colourful marble slabs a large wall mosaic was added, covering the wall of the apse on its entire breadth. The mosaic is an impressive high-quality composition. Neither Ravenna nor any other place offers a parallel.”
