Secret Art Fortress. As the chaos of World War II engulfs Italy, a British officer makes a shocking find: at a 900-year-old castle near the front line lies a vast collection of priceless artworks by some of Italy's greatest Renaissance masters. Hosts Sam and RJ are on site of Montegufoni Castle to get to the bottom of the weird tale. Who put the masterpieces there? Why? And just how did the works survive as battle raged less than 2500 yards away and the castle fell to Nazi occupiers? While bombs, artillery and fire destroyed galleries, museums and estates all over Italy, another looming threat was plunder-Hitler's nightmarish vision for the purging of Europe encompassed its cultural treasures, which the Nazis set their sights on to seize and appropriate as their own. But in the face of numerous dangers, an audacious plan was set in motion to safeguard the artworks and prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. The hosts discover the real story behind the Montegufoni art stash is a tale of a miracle, pulled off in the face of mounting adversity and at great personal risk. The cost was borne by plucky heroes who played their unsung role in preserving the treasures, for the future of the Italian nation and for all human posterity.
