Rome's Quirinal Palace displays stolen treasures recovered by Italy's art police

L'arte di salvare l’arte. Frammenti di storia d’Italia.

5 May-14 July. Under the title The art of saving art. Fragments of Italian history, an exhibition at Palazzo del Quirinale celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Carabinieri's specialised unit for the protection of cultural heritage.

The exhibition includes some of the most significant cultural assets recovered by the art police in half a century of investigative work, as well as pieces returned to Italy thanks to diplomatic efforts in collaboration with the culture ministry.

Visitors can admire objects that have been stolen from churches, museums, archaeological areas, libraries and archives, accompanied by the stories of their recovery. The exhibition also includes treasures placed in safety following the 2016 earthquakes in central Italy.

Among the masterpieces on display are the Madonna of Senigallia by Piero della Francesca, the Crater of Euphronios, the Trapezophoros, the Triad Capitolina, the Portrait of a Gardener by Van Gogh, Le Cabanon de Jourdan by Paul Cézanne, the Castellani jewellery, and the Holy Family with a Saint by Andrea Mantegna.

For full exhibition details see Palazzo del Quirinale website.
