Here are some photographs that I found online about the massive pleasure barges of Caligula, excavated from Lake Nemi during the 30s, on the orders of Mussolini, placed in a “Museum of Roman navigation” by him, and then destroyed in 1944 during the fighting. Worth looking at… and feeling sad about.
The hull of this one seems deeper.
The same image, with some processing, I think.
Visitors queue to see the immense hulk.
In the museum.
A side shot of the bow.
Really very deep hull, this.
Mussolini comes with his Fascists to open the museum. Little did he know…
