    Abstract

    Art theft has become a thriving black-market industry that results in global losses of about $6 billion a year, according to the FBI. For decades, thousands of Italian works of art were smuggled out of the country and ended up in the galleries or warehouses of some of the world’s biggest antiquities dealers. The documentary describes the action of Italian Police against this massive art looting and its recent successful results.
