The Medici Conspiracy : The Illicit Journey of Looted Antiquities--From Italy's Tomb Raiders to the World's Greatest Museums

With unprecedented access to confidential Carabinieri and court documents in Italy, Watson details startling evidence from dealers and museums on three continents, from the auction houses of Sotheby's and Christie's in London and New York to art dealers and collectors in Japan, Germany and Paris.
