Princeton University Art Museum, Italy reach new antiquities agreement
Posted January 25, 2012; 01:00 p.m. share | e-mail | printby StaffThe Princeton University Art Museum and Italian cultural authorities have completed the transfer of ownership of six works of art in the museum's collections.

The transfer agreement is an addendum to an agreement with Italy that the University entered into in 2007. It builds upon the museum's history of successfully resolving ownership claims for works of art in its collections.

Under the agreement, six works were returned to the Republic of Italy in December 2011. The transfer of title for the six returned items is an important aspect of the agreement because it recognizes that legal title rested with Princeton before the transfer and that the works were acquired by Princeton in good faith.
