Rome - Italian police recovered 14 paintings and sculptures, including works by De Chirico and Kandinsky, worth an estimated €30m and arrested two people for receiving stolen goods, the Italian news agency Ansa reported on Saturday.

The art works were found in a farm close to the Italian capital in the course of an investigation into a theft from a house in Rome's historic centre.

The operation prevented them being sold off on the parallel black market for stolen works of art, Ansa said.
