Stolen fresco found in London gallery!

A fresco stolen from the storerooms of Pompeii has been found in a London art gallery and returned to the Italian embassy in London. The fresco is apparently from a villa at Boscoreale. Read for yourselves the article in Il Messaggero. The really weird thing is that no-one knows WHEN the fresco was actually stolen! Which just goes to show how much stuff there is in the storerooms and how hard it is to keep track of it. Don't even get me started …
