Antonella specialises in restoration work in cathedrals and churches and she has been carefully restoring paintwork originally created by Italian prisoners of war during World War Two.

The artwork has recently suffered from water damage, and Antonella has given her valuable time to carry out the work. NorthLink Ferries are proud to have supported her and the Italian Chapel Preservation committee by offering her discounted travel from Aberdeen.
