The Comando Carabinieri per la Tutela del Patrimonio Comunale, sometimes affectionately referred to as the “Arts army”, is the branch of Italian military police safeguarding Italy’s cultural heritage from crimes and counterfeit. “The Tri-Color Defense: Gatekeepers of Cultural Identity” showcases a variety of artworks from different periods that have benefitted from the task force’s work. Works on display are all partially or fully recovered subjects of terrorist attacks, war crimes, thefts or illicit deals, or have been otherwise targeted or compromised. One section also explores the pioneering work of Rodolfo Siviero, whose recovery efforts during the Nazi plunder preceded the formation of this police branch. Offering free entry, the exhibition is small, manageable and moving, perfect for exploring on a leisurely late-December afternoon.
