The Italian Chapel – book launch in Moena

We are in Moena in northern Italy at the book launch for La Chiesetta Della Pace – Orkney’s Italian Chapel by Philip Paris translated by Inga Sempel. The strong links between Orkney and Moena, the birthplace of Domenico Chiocchetti, the artist of the Italian Chapel have resulted in school exchanges, community and council links and deep and lasting friendships.

The English version is wonderful. I hope the Italian version will further the knowledge and appreciation of this amazing feat of creativity.
