Robert Edsel talked about his book, Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation’s Treasures From the Nazis, in which he reports on the rescue and protection of historic pieces of art in Italy during World War II. The Nazi Army, who occupied Italy in 1943, looted numerous historic artifacts and artwork that dated from the Renaissance and the Roman Empire. In his book, the author recounts the Allied mission to reacquire the artwork and focuses on the efforts of two men, art scholar Fred Hartt and artist Deane Keller, who pursued missing works by Michelangelo, Caravaggio, and Donatello. close
