Italian Antiquities Trial update (New York Times)
The Italian case against the J. Paul Getty Museum has been proceeding, with tempers flaring: "The charged atmosphere reflects the high profile of the trial, which is being closely watched by museums around the world. It is the first time that Italy has charged a museum official with involvement in the trade of looted objects. Italian officials hope the trial will discourage museums and collectors from buying art that appears on the market without a clear provenance".
