NEAPOLITAN BLUES AND IMPERIAL PURPLE OF ROMAN ITALY LAKE BOLSENA'S EELS WERE MENTIONED IN DANTE'S "DIVINE COMEDY" To-day, men and boys in strange, triangular boats angle in the blue waters of this circular lake, cupped in an extinct crater-all that's left of a volcanic giant that eons ago blew off its head.
