An interesting link found among my daily reading
Taken during our second visit to Sicily to visit family where we toured around Siracusa and other towns.
“The Ear of Dionysius (Italian: Orecchio di Dionisio) is a limestone cave carved out of the Temenites hill in the city of Syracuse, on the island of Sicily in Italy. Its name comes from its similarity in shape to the human ear.
The name of the cave was coined in 1586 by the painter Caravaggio. It refers to the tyrant Dionysius I of Syracuse. According to legend (possibly one created by Caravaggio), Dionysius used the cave as a prison for political dissidents, and by means of the perfect acoustics eavesdropped on the plans and secrets of his captives.” — Wikipedia
On YouTube: 31 rolls of film from a WW2 soldier are discovered and processed. And the results are breathtaking
Over 70 years ago, an American WW2 soldier filled 31 rolls of film with pictures. Nobody has seen them before — until The Rescued Film Project recovered and processes them.
I liked this video and think you might find it interesting, too!
