Rudolph Nureyev’s Former Italian Island becomes Mariah Carey’s Secret Retreat

The Amalfi Coast offers up a breathtaking view through death-defying winding roadways. The coastal trip from Naples to Positano will inspire and wear you out at the same time. With a dramatic 500 foot drop below the narrow roads, this is one of the true wonders of Italy.

Sistine Chapel, Time: The Flood by Michelangelo Buonarroti

Notice the people getting on the ark, then the other people getting on some sort of craft which suspiciously looks like the cathedral from the Engineer city.


Information from Wikipedia:
The Sistine Chapel (/ˌsɪstiːn ˈtʃæpəl/; Latin: Sacellum Sixtinum; Italian: Cappella Sistina[kapˈpɛlla siˈstiːna]) is a chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope, in Vatican City. Originally known as the Cappella Magna, the chapel takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV, who restored it between 1477 and 1480. Since that time, the chapel has served as a place of both religious and functionary papal activity. Today it is the site of the Papal conclave, the process by which a new pope is selected. The fame of the Sistine Chapel lies mainly in the frescos that decorate the interior, and most particularly the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgment by Michelangelo.


My husband(being the architect that he is), helped me identify the original building.

Information from Wikipedia:
The Acropolis of Athens (Ancient Greek: Ἀκρόπολις, tr. AkrópolisModern Greek: Ακρόπολη Αθηνών, tr. Akrópoli Athenón [aˈkropoli aθiˈnon]) is an ancient citadel located on an extremely rocky outcrop above the city of Athens and contains the remains of several ancient buildings of great architectural and historic significance, the most famous being the Parthenon. The word acropolis comes from the Greek words ἄκρον (akron, “highest point, extremity”) and πόλις(polis, “city”). Although there are many other acropoleis in Greece, the significance of the Acropolis of Athens is such that it is commonly known as “The Acropolis” without qualification.
While there is evidence that the hill was inhabited as far back as the fourth millennium BC, it was Pericles (c. 495 – 429 BC) in the fifth century BC who coordinated the construction of the site’s most important buildings including the Parthenon, the Propylaia, the Erechtheion and the Temple of Athena Nike. The Parthenon and the other buildings were seriously damaged during the 1687 siege by the Venetians in the Morean War when gunpowder being stored in the Parthenon was hit by a cannonball and exploded.

Brooklyn’s Lindsay A. Powell is Fielded, and she refers to her genre as “post-apocalyptic pop”, which I imagine we’ll be in need of sooner rather than later. Rya Kleinpeter and Benjy Russell have directed the video for “Chapel of Lies”, and it’s the best sort of dream – surreal, unpredictable and challenging. The song is an incredible ride. Her Ninety Thirty Thirty album is out now.
