Today I interview Corrado CATESI on Interpol and Art Crime.
“We are witnessing an alarming increase in the traffic of fake cultural objects from conflict zones.”Corrado Catesi, Head of INTERPOL’s programme against cultural heritage crimes.
called ID-Art, uses cutting-edge image-recognition software to help identify stolen cultural property, reduce illicit trafficking, and increase the chances of recovering stolen items.
ID-Art enables users to:
Get mobile access to the INTERPOL database of stolen works of art;
Create an inventory of private art collections;
Report cultural sites potentially at risk.
It is free download from the Apple Store and Android Play Store.
Thanks for our interview!
