Morgantina loan deal loses its sheen

Sicily wants to renegotiate “one-sided” agreement hammered out in 2006 between the Met and Italy over restituted treasure

When the Met returned the Morgantina silver to Italy it expected to display it again this year

Will pieces of Morgantina silver return to New York from Sicily this year? The clock is ticking to renegotiate the deal struck in 2006 between the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Italian government and the regional government of Sicily that should, in theory, mean the remarkable collection of ancient Greek silver and silver gilt-artefacts return on loan to the Met this year for four years.
