Rome – Italian police recovered 14 paintings and sculptures, including works by De Chirico and Kandinsky, worth an estimated 30 million euros (37 million dollars), and arrested two people for receiving stolen goods, the Italian news agency Ansa reported Saturday.
The art works were found in a farm close to the Italian capital in the course of an investigation into a theft from a house in Rome’s historic centre.
The operation prevented them being sold off on the parallel black market for stolen works of art, Ansa said. – Sapa-AFP
