LOS ANGELES (AP) undefined The love goddess Aphrodite is going home to Italy after the new year, stronger and more stable than she has been in 2,500 years.
The statue, being returned to Sicily as part of Italy's decade-old campaign to retrieve antiquities it says were illegally brought to California, will be the last of 40 artifacts the J. Paul Getty Museum agreed to turn over.
Sebastiano Missineo, the minister of culture from Sicily, visited the Getty Villa in Malibu on Monday and viewed the statue.
