Stolen paintings recovered by Italian heritage police

ROME -- Two paintings by the French artists Paul Gauguin and Pierre Bonnard, stolen in London in the 1970s, have been recovered in Italy, the culture ministry said Wednesday.

The works, thought to be worth millions of dollars, were recovered by Italy's heritage police, who are expected to reveal details of the works and their recovery at a press conference later Wednesday.

The police division for the Protection of Cultural Heritage will also unveil an application for mobile telephones and tablets which will “allow citizens to actively collaborate in the search for stolen works of art” by sending in photographs of suspect artworks, it said.
