The Italian Chapel was built during WWII on the small isle of Lamb Holm, located on the edge of Scapa Flow in Orkney. The chapel was built by Italian prisoners of war captured in North Africa and put to work on the Churchill Barriers. Using limited materials available to them, the prisoners joined two Nissen Huts end to end to make the chapel. They created a facade out of concrete, concealing the shape of the hut and making the building look like a church. The light holders were made out of corned beef tins. The baptismal font was made from the inside of a car exhaust covered in a layer of concrete. Much of the artistic work was done by Domenico Chiocchetti from Moena who returned to finish his work after the war ended.
