Nazi-Looted Paintings Owned by Prince Felix Recovered

Italian police announced today that they have recovered three religiously themed paintings looted by Nazi troops from a Tuscan villa in Camaiore owned by Prince Felix, husband of Grand Duchess Charlotte, over 70 years ago. They had since been missing. The paintings, part of the collection of the House of Bourbon-Parma, were seized in two private homes in Milan last July and are now exhibited at the Pinacoteca di Brera art museum in Milan. The paintings will not be returned to the Grand Ducal Family as compensation had already been paid for the loss, police said.
