Rome, Feb 12 (UITV/IANS) - Italian Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli will on Tuesday attend a ceremony in London at which eight lots of treasures stolen from Italy in various eras will be returned to the country, the culture ministry said in a statement.

A press conference will be held after the ceremony, the statement added.
