A “thrilling, well-researched” account of years of scandal at the prestigious Getty Museum (Ulrich Boser, author of The Gardner Heist). In recent years, several of America’s leading art museums have voluntarily given up their finest pieces of classical art to the governments of Italy and Greece. Why would they be moved to such unheard-of generosity? The answer lies at the Getty, one of the world’s richest and most troubled museums, and scandalous revelations that it had been buying looted antiquities for decades. Drawing on a trove of confidential museum records and candid interviews, these two journalists give us a fly-on-the-wall account of the inner workings of a world-class museum, and tell a story of outlandish characters and bad behavior that could come straight from the pages of a thriller. “In an authoritative account, two reporters who led a Los Angeles Times investigation reveal the details of the Getty Museum’s illicit purchases, from smugglers and fences, of looted Greek and Roman antiquities. . . . The authors offer an excellent recap of the museum’s misdeeds, brimming with tasty details of the scandal that motivated several of America’s leading art museums to voluntarily return to Italy and Greece some 100 classical antiquities worth more than half a billion dollars.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review “An astonishing and penetrating look into a veiled world where beauty and art are in constant competition with greed and hypocrisy. This engaging book will cast a fresh light on many of those gleaming objects you see in art museums.” —Jonathan Harr, author of The Lost Painting

Lawrence Ferlinghetti nasce nel 1919 a Yonkers, New York, da padre italiano e madre di origini franco-portoghesi. È poeta, romanziere, traduttore, editore, pittore, autore di teatro e drammi radiofonici. Anima della San Francisco Renaissance, che negli anni 50 stravolge le convenzioni letterarie e sociali del tempo, Ferlinghetti è da allora protagonista di una intensa attività creativa, mai disgiunta da una profonda attenzione a tematiche politiche, sociali ed ecologiche. Fondatore assieme a Pete D. Martin della famosa City Lights Bookstore, Ferlinghetti ha sempre compiuto scelte editoriali coraggiose, come la pubblicazione di “Urlo” di Allen Ginsberg, vero manifesto della beat generation, per la quale viene accusato di vendita e distribuzione di materiale osceno: il noto processo del 1956 termina con una storica vittoria legale contro la censura. Negli anni ha partecipato a numerosi festival e reading di poesia, tra i quali quelli storici alla Royal Albert Hall di Londra (1965), a Castelporziano (1978), ad Amsterdam (1981), dimostrandosi viaggiatore instancabile e artista sempre attento alla difesa degli ultimi e del pianeta. Ha esposto le proprie opere pittoriche in diversi musei e gallerie sia negli Stati Uniti che in Europa. Insignito nel 1998 del titolo di primo Poeta Laureato della città di San Francisco, Ferlinghetti ha ricevuto svariati riconoscimenti, tra cui recentemente quello di Commendatore al merito della Repubblica Italiana. Il suo “A Coney Island of the Mind” tradotto in decine di lingue, è tra i libri di poesia più letti al mondo con oltre un milione di copie stampate.
