Authorities recover guitar made by Picasso



Following a denunciation made by the widow of the italian artist Giuseppe Vittorio Parisi, the italian authorities recovered a toy guitar that Pablo Picasso had sculpted for his daughter Paloma.
The wooden "little guitar" made in yellow, grey and black colours was found inside a shoebox in an apartment in Pomezia, belonging to a merchant who allegedly had convinced Giuseppe Parisi (friend of Picasso) to lend him the object with the purpose of making a custom-made box for display, however the guitar was never returned.
According to the desire of Parisi's widow Wanda, the guitar will go onto permanent display at the Civic Museum of Contemporary Art in Maccagno, Northern Italy.
