This is the strange and mysterious tale of Caravaggio's Nativity with St Francis and St Lawrence (also known as The Adoration). Painted in the early 17th century, it was stolen from the Oratory of San Lorenzo in Palermo, Italy in 1969 and hasn't been seen in public since. Now, leading art laboratory and workshop Factum Arte aims to replace the stolen artwork by creating an exact replica via a sophisticated 3D printing technique. This film follows this fascinating journey as experts hope to fill the picture frame that has hung empty in the oratory for the last 47 years and present the Sicilian town with the next best thing to its original masterpiece.
