Violin stolen in Paris is recovered in Serbia

In June 2015, a burglar broke into a house in the 19th arrondissement, making off with clothes, jewellery and a valuable violin, built for the owner by the Italian luthier, Filippo Fasser.

Some weeks later, Filippo Fasser received an email from Serbia asking for a valuation of the violin, with pictures attached.

The luthier contacted a French colleague, who alerted police in both countries.

The violin was recovered in the small town of Prijepolje and returned to the French embassy this week in a ceremony in Belgrade.
