K Television 9 Want Ads 2125 /.adon takes effect ROME (APi — A government publication charges that foreign banks are investing in stolen Italian art works and that several European museums are displaying “illegally acquired” masterpieces. A recent issue of Vita Ita-liana, published by the office of the premier, said more than 8.000 works were stolen in 1973 and the problem is worsening. It declared that the provincial archaeological museum of Brindisi and the civic museum. of Termini lmerese have been virtually emptied Thieves have pilfered from them 1,500 ancient vases, coins and bronze statues, mostly dating back to Greek and Roman times, it said An Italian abroad feels “painfully astonished” at see ing masterpieces of “illegal acquisition” exhibited not only in private collections but also in state museums, Vita Banana said. It cited a madonna and child by Lorenzo Monaco reported stolen in Milan and now on show in the Museum of Stuttgart in West Germany. As another example, it said a panel painted in 1483 by Jacopo del Sellaio was stolen from the church of San Frediao in Florence and is now on display at the State Museum of Berlin “Perhaps the most striking case is that of a madonna by Paolo Veronese. It was taken away by German armies in 1943 and is still adorning a German government build-mg,” the article said It said most of the stolen art works are smuggled and sold abroad by international organizations “that can count on a ring of experts’’ and claimed that “some European banks’ investment plans include the purchase of art works even if stolen.” Vita Italians identified none of the banks allegedly involved The article complained that legislation from sources like the U. N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization have been ineffective in halting the drain. “Not all countries have signed the UNESCO agreement calling for the extradition of art works unlawfully imported,” it said. “You can trade a stolen art piece as you like if you just keep it hidden for a while ” As for Italy’s efforts to protect its artistic heritage, the publication said sufficient protection is almost impossible. Italy has almost 30.000 churches and 60.000 other religious buildings, many with splendid Renaissance period artifacts; 200 state museums; and hundreds of municipal and private art collections. Nevertheless. Vita Italiana implied that more could be done. It said that in 1973 the Italian Fine Arts Authority set aside only $30,000, for installing alarms in just 53 museums and churches. In the same year art thefts jumped to 8.520 There were 1.200 in 1967. Because of the increasing problem, some experts have decided the only way for full protection of art masterpieces is to keep them hidden from the public fhe knew Nixon campaign officials had "a general intention” to gather political intelligence in 1972 bu* was completely unaware of plans to bug Watergate.
