Works of art stolen in Verona, Italy

On 19 November 2015, 17 masterpieces worth some EUR 20 million were stolen at the Castelvecchio Civic Museum in Verona, Italy.

Three masked armed men broke into the museum and after restraining a security guard snatched the paintings and made their get-away in a car.

Both Italy’s Carabinieri for the Protection of Cultural Heritage and the Questura of Verona are leading the investigation.

All the stolen masterpieces have been recorded into INTERPOL’s Works of Art database, which is publicly accessible via a secure connection.

The description of the works of art is in the accompanying photo gallery.

Anyone with information about the theft or whereabouts of the stolen items is asked to contact INTERPOL’s Works of Art unit (Ref. MI-123-U-B-3-6-OA-2015-905/PGB) at INTERPOL’s General Secretariat headquarters (Ref. 2015/77649).
