Private collection

A MISSING work by Botticelli worth €100 million has been found in a private house in a suburb of Naples. The painting was commissioned by the Roman Catholic Church in 1470 and had been listed as missing since the 1980s. Italian authorities are currently investigating its legal ownership and considering its possible public display as Italy has strict regulations regarding private ownership of important works of art.
