Judge in Italy orders return of Getty Bronze | LA Times Blog

It seems as if the culture war between Italy and LA's Getty Museum has been going on for longer than this good-looking guy has been around, and undoubtedly today's judicial decision by Italian judge Lorena Mussoni in the case of the beautiful young athlete pictured at left will not be end of the struggle to possess this incredible object.

Unless the Italians do successfully confiscate the sculpture, it is currently on exhibit at the Getty Villa in Malibu.

For the details on the latest court decision, check out David Ng's article in his LA Times blog Culture Monster.
