On the eve of the Allied invasion of Italy, bombs threatened Michelangelo’s David and nearly destroyed Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. Robert Edsel is the best-selling author of The Monuments Men (now being made into a major feature film by George Clooney). Edsel’s new book Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation’s Treasures from the Nazis, follows artist Deane Keller and scholar Fred Hartt, as they embarked on the treasure hunt of a lifetime, tracking works by Donatello, Titian, Caravaggio, and Botticelli. Book signing to follow.
