7 June-26 Jan. The Capitoline Museums mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the special Carabinieri unit for the protection of cultural heritage with L'Arte Ritrovata, an exhibition of looted archaeological and artistic treasures returned to Italy.
The works, normally kept in the vaults of important Italian museums, range from the Greek, Etruscan and Roman ages up to the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
Highlights include a painting of John the Baptist by Guercino, frescoes torn from a Roman villa in the Pompeii area, and bronzes excavated illegally in southern Italy.
For exhibition details see Musei Capitolini website.
