Oh, this is cool af!

Remnants of an Italian village are now visible after being underwater for more than 70 years.

In 1950, the village of Curon was flooded in order to create a hydroelectric plant now called Lake Resia. The Netflix series “Curon” was inspired by an image of the town’s church bell tower sticking out of the lake. It’s the only visible part of the town.

Now, officials have to drain the lake to repair leaks on the reservoir. When the repairs are done, the village will be submerged once, again within the next few weeks.
