A pair of Old Master paintings by Aniello Falcone and Valentin de Boulogne have been recovered in Britain. The works were stolen separately in 1994 from the former Italian prime minister Emilio Colombo and an accountant. The current owner, who was unaware that the paintings were stolen, had been storing the works in a vault in London. The paintings were returned to Rome last week.
