A sensational trove. A great discovery. A cinematographic tour through 4 stunning exhibitions. 70 years on from Hitler’s declaration of war on “degenerate” art, this event film reveals secrets of the Fuhrer's treasure. Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and Chagall: paintings hidden, looted and condemned finally come to light to reveal the Nazi obsession for art on the big screen. Starting from the incredible Gurlitt case and his massive collection, the true story of masterpieces persecuted and banned during the 20th century.

Introduced and narrated by Toni Servillo, winner of 2 European Film Awards and protagonist of The Great Beauty, Best Foreign Film at the 86th Academy Awards.
80 years have passed since the Nazi Regime placed a definite ban on so-called degenerate art, considered ‘cosmopolitan and communist’.
In 1937 an exhibition was held publically branding and stigmatizing it, at the same time, at Hitler’s behest, the confiscation began of ancient and classic works of art, of masterpieces that were to occupy those spaces imagined to be the Louvre of Linz.

This documentary tells many stories. And all of them revolve around three big exhibitions, the starting point for a series of human and artistic narratives: “Degenerate Art” Munich, July 9, 1937, “21 rue La Boétie”, Paris, March 2017 and “Gurlitt Collection”, in two locations.
