Oh, art! What are we ever going to do with you?
A cleaning lady accidentally threw out $13,000 worth of art in a South Italy gallery recently when she mistook a Sala Murat exhibit for TRASH!
Holy cannoli! Italy hasn't witnessed a tragedy this big since
the volcanic eruption of theatrical opening of Pompeii - what a disaster!
In the cleaning lady's defense, the art was broken cookies lying on the floor! Uhh, broken floor cookies? Who can really blame her for the mix up?!
Luckily, the cleaning company that employed the unnamed duster/sweeper/destroyer of art is well-insured and the artist will be compensated for the loss of their work!
