Italian Chapel

Artist: 
Donald J. Rommes

"Now one of the most visited sites in Orkney, this chapel was built by Italian prisoners during the Second World War. The building is comprised of two Quonset huts placed end to end. The "vaulted" ceiling, the "marble" floor, and the "frescoes" were painted by hand as a trompe l'oeil (fool the eye). Seeking beauty in a troubled time, the men of Camp 60 found dignity in the creation of this site, which now serves to remind the visitor of the terrible losses of war." – Don Rommes
