  1. This is amazing, and reminds me of a gay-themed movie titled ‘Call Me by Your Name’ set in Italy. The father of the younger lover was involved in retrieving statuary similar to this. Anyone have more details, or am I off the mark?

    • I definitely know the movie you’re talking about but I haven’t seen it (yet). I’m sure though that there have been many underwater discoveries of ancient artifacts in Italy. It may be the same one though!
