A joint issue of a miniature sheet with Italy and the Sovereign Order of Malta celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Carabinieri Command for the Protection of Cultural Heritage. The Command ensures the protection of cultural patrimony, the recovery of cultural goods and the technical and didactic material inherent to the works themselves. The miniature sheet issued for the occasion features some of the many stolen artworks that have been recovered thanks to the intervention of the Unit for the Protection of Artistic Heritage, including, “The Holy Family” by Mantegna on the € 5.40 stamp; on the five envelope seals, “Portrait of a Young Woman” by Raphael, a rare illuminated codex, “The Gardener” by Van Gogh, a Roman ivory mask, and the facade of the Palace of Saint Ignatius, headquarters of the Command. All appear on a background of “The Nativity” by Caravaggio.
