There's been a significant art heist in Verona, Italy.
The mayor of Verona is quoted as saying that the theft must have been 'specially commissioned by someone because the thieves were well timed, well organised and knew what they wanted'.

Things like this always amaze me. Martin and I have had discussions about the motives for this type of heist and the dispersal of the bounty.
I still don't understand. What on earth are they going to do with it? One can't exactly show off to one's friends with a, 'Here, look at my priceless collection of stolen art.'
Anyway, I'm just glad no one at the museum was hurt.
