Guarda la foto1 di 1 (ANSA) - Pesaro, April 21 - An Italian judge on Wednesday turned down an appeal from the John Paul Getty Museum against the seizure of an Ancient Greek bronze statue at the center of a long-running dispute between Italy and the US museum.

Judge Raffaele Cormio said he could see "no reason" to uphold the Getty's request to suspend the confiscation of the world-famous artefact, which was found in the sea near this Adriatic coastal city 45 years ago.
