Yes, it's all true, I was invited by the very prestigious Travel and Leisure tourism magazine to give some ideas and suggestions for a trip to Ravenna.

Here are some excerpts, complete with mention of my name!!!!

Mausoleo di Galla Placidia

Of all the UNESCO-listed monuments in the city, Mausoleo di Galla Placidia should absolutely be at the top of your list. “It’s a beautiful example of early Christian architecture: humble and simple on the outside but preserves so much richness on the inside,” explains Francesco Antonelli, a Ravenna-based guide with Imago Artis Travel. “Every centimeter of the interiors is ornamented with precious mosaics illuminated by a soft, mystical light that brings out the indigo shades of the starry sky of the entrance vault.”

Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo

“Widely regarded among the most interesting churches in the region, Basilica di Sant'Apollinare Nuovo tells the story of a chaotic and turbulent history between the 5th and 6th centuries BC,” explains Antonelli. It was erected by Ostrogothic king Theodoric the Great in the 6th century and was later converted into a Catholic church. Inside the UNESCO site, find historic mosaics depicting religious scenes.
