Rescuing Italian Art from Nazis

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Robert Edsel talks about the men and women who rescued great Italian art from destruction during WWII. In May 1944 two unlikely American heroes—artist Deane Keller and scholar Fred Hartt—set out from Naples to track billions of dollars of missing art, including works by Michelangelo, Donatello, Titian, Caravaggio, and Botticelli. Edsel tells the story in Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation’s Treasures from the Nazis.
