Final Jeopardy Explanation

Vincenzo Peruggia was an Italian museum employee, artist, and burglar known for stealing the Mona Lisa from the Louvre in Paris on August 21, 1911.

Author Seymour Reit summed Peruggia’s patriotism as such “Vincenzo Perugia was an Italian workman, a carpenter. He lived hand to mouth. He hated France. He pined for Italy. He loved the painting. He thought all the paintings — the Italian masterpieces in the Louvre — had been stolen by Napoleon and brought to France, which upset him terribly.”
