    Our stay in Italy finished dramatically quickly and with great losses.
    September 28th around 13:00 We were victims of organized robbery and we lost a huge part of our photographic equipment.
    Everything happened in the center of Rome, at Via Principe Amedeo 128.
    We ask for access to this information, containing the serial numbers of our equipment because, according to the Italian police without running internet searches our assets is not recoverable.
    We list the stolen items with serial numbers:
    - Canon 5D Mark II - Series: 2931529505 - with battery grip Meike
    - Canon 5D Mark II - Series: 3731710950 - with brown neck strap,
    - Lens Canon 24mm 1.4 L II USM- Series: 01538582 - with UV filter, chipped rubber,
    - Lens Canon 50mm 1.4 USM - Series: 60307940 - with UV filter, lens hood
    - Lens Canon 85mm 1.8 USM - Series: 2519A017 - with UV filter, which could not be unscrewed because of the gentle indentation
    - Sigma 35 mm 1.4 DG - Series: 50139437 - with UV filter, heavily scratched rubber
    - Flash Canon Speedlite 430 EX2 - Series: 329262 - broken off a piece of plastic in the bead area
    - Triggers King RX Wireless TTL Flash Trigger on bag, transmitter and receiver
    - Charger Canon
    - CF Cards SanDisk 16GB 4x 5x 8 GB 1x 4GB
    - Plecak Lowepro model Fastpack 350
    For us this is a huge loss not only material but also emotional. We still can not understand the cruelty and lawlessness. We have lost not only the equipment but also memories associated with each part of it.
    It's like someone took a piece of us. Please watch out for yourself and your property, warn friends. At the police station in Rome told us that there are 50 person in the queue notifying theft.
    Once again please share this information. We believe in the power of the internet and possibility to hinder sell. We will track the auctions on Ebay Italy and
    They robbed us of the equipment, unrealized session, theholidays, a sense of security, trust in people but not robbed us of sensitivity shooting skills and passion for what we do. With the help of our friends and family we buy back all the equipment and we will continue to create photography, because it pushes us forward and gives us strength.
    All photo materials are safe and future reports and sessions too.
    Special thanks to Magda and Francesco, who were with us in the most difficult moments for us and took care of us.
    Please share this!
