The Italian Chapel is a story of forbidden love, lifelong friendships torn apart, despair and hope, set against the backdrop of the creation of a symbol that is known around the world.
Amidst strikes, conflicts and untold hardships, the Italian prisoners of war sent to a tiny Orkney island during World War Two create a monument to the human spirit's ability to lift itself above great adversity.
One artist falls in love with a local Orkney woman and leaves a token of his love in the chapel...it is still there today, and until The Italian Chapel, no-one has ever known its true meaning.
