Italian authorities have notified Michael Padgett, a veteran curator for ancient art at the Princeton University Art Museum, that a criminal investigation against him has ended, Padgett said.

“I’m pleased to tell you that last month I was notified that the investigation by the Rome prosecutor’s office relating to me has been fully and formally dismissed, and is now closed,” Padgett wrote in a Dec. 10 email to PAW. “[T]his was the outcome we expected and is consistent with the University’s own findings.” Padgett, the art museum’s curator of ancient art since 1992, said he was looking forward to focusing on his research and curatorial work.
