    A carabiniere (Italian paramilitary police) officer stands by a Paul Gauguin still life recovered by authorities, during a press conference in Rome, Wednesday, April 2, 2014. Italian police say a Paul Gauguin still life, stolen from a private collection in Britain in 1970, hung on a kitchen wall in a retired Sicilian auto-worker's home for 40 years but now has been recovered by authorities. Maj. Massimiliano Quagliarella of the paramilitary Carabininieri art theft squad told The AP Wednesday the man displayed it in his kitchen, first in Turin, when he worked for Fiat, and then in Sicily, because the painting, depicting two bowls of fruit, seemed suitable to put near his table. Quagliarella said the man brought the painting, along with another of lesser value by Pierre Bonnard, at a 1975 Italian state railways auction of unclaimed lost items, for the equivalent then of about 100 dollars. The auctioneers didn't know they were stolen. (AP Photo/Daniele Leone, Lapresse)
