  • Do you know that Zeffirelli’s film, Tea with Mussolini, in wich some aristocratic british ladies who are living in Tuscany during World War II join the forces to defend their beloved local artistic heritage? Monuments Men real story has a similar plot and different features. Briefly, the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program, established in 1943, was a squad of Allied soldiers who were mostly expert at art and whose common duty was to safeguard european artworks from nazis’ raids. Hundreds of invaluable paintings and pieces of history were recovered and restored through the noble work of these almost unheard-of heroes. I always thought they deserved the world to know what they did and finally George Clooney, an american lover of Europe, decides to make a film about this story. Thanks, George.
