An investigation by the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Dallas (ICE) recovered a 19th century painting that was stolen from the Abbey of Santa María in Sylvis, located in the city of Sesto al Reghena , Italy, in May 2002.
The painting called “The Assumption of the Virgin Mary” was created by the Italian artist Giuseppe Pappini in August 1851.
Thanks to a clue received during the investigation in Rome in 2019, they managed to locate the painting.
HSI in Dallas traced the painting to a private art collector in the Dallas area. According to Homeland Security Investigations, the collector had purchased the painting in 2015 from a dealer who did not know it had been stolen.
The private collector voluntarily agreed to hand over the artwork to HSI after learning the origins of the painting so that it could be returned to the monastery in Italy.
“Investigating the loss or looting of cultural heritage properties and returning them to their countries of origin is an important part of HSI’s diverse mission. Our specially trained investigators and attachés in more than 40 countries do not only partner with governments, agencies and experts who share our mission to protect these items, but train investigators from other nations and agencies on how to find, authenticate, and enforce the law to retrieve these items when they emerge on the market, “said Special Agent Ryan L. Spradlin by HSI Dallas.
This research was led by HSI Dallas and assisted by the HSI Aggregate Office in Rome and the Division of Cultural Property, Arts and Antiquities at HSI Headquarters in Washington, DC
With patience and diligence, this artist creates unique art using waste.

Perry gives Stars 1-0 lead after 1 in Game 5 of Cup Final
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) — Corey Perry scored to give the Dallas Stars a 1-0 lead on the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night as they try to avoid elimination.
Perry’s goal with 2:08 left gave the Stars a boost of confidence against the Lightning, who lead the series 3-1. Tampa Bay last won it in 2004.
Stars winger Alexander Radulov had a big hand in Perry’s goal by shaking up defenseman Mikhail Sergachev with a check. With Sergachev in pain, Tyler Seguin carried the puck toward the net, Perry ended up with it on his stick and he lifted it past Andrei Vasilevskiy for his second goal in as many games.
Getting a lead was crucial for Dallas against Tampa Bay, which is 9-0 in this postseason in the bubble when leading after one.
Goaltender Anton Khudobin made sure that wouldn’t be the case. Among his 10 first-period saves, he stopped Yanni Gourde from close range on his blocker side, which has been the Lightning’s prime target for goals the past three games to take over the series.
It wasn’t all good for the Stars in the first. Reliable defensive defenseman Andrej Sekera limped off after blocking a shot from Sergachev midway through the period.
Depleted Dallas can’t afford another injury after adding forward Roope Hintz to their growing list of unavailable players. Hintz was injured in Game 4 Friday night when he crashed into the boards. Forwards Radek Faksa and Blake Comeau, defenseman Stephen Johns and goaltender Ben Bishop are also out.
For Tampa Bay, captain Steven Stamkos was the only notable absence after he tweaked something in his triumphant Game 3 return that included him scoring on his only shot.
