In Orkney's Italian Chapel: The True Story of an Icon Philip Paris now tells the full story of the extraordinary event surrounding the chapel's creation, and reveals secrets that have remained hidden since 1944.

It is the story of the men who built the chapel, including master painter Domenico Chiocchetti, and how their vision to create a small oasis of peace in a war-torn world forged a bond between the Italians and their British conterparts that would stand the test of time.

The incredible legacy they left - a masterpiece in plasterboard and scrap metal - is not only a symbol of hope around the world but a lasting reminder of the true strength of the human spirit.
