End of a long story: after years of controversies, the Getty Museum and Italy have finally reached an agreement regarding Getty's Italian antiquities. Here is the Museum's press note:

Italy's Minister of Culture Francesco Rutelli, and the Director of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Dr. Michael Brand, announced today that they have reached an agreement regarding the Ministry's claim for objects in the Getty Museum's antiquities collection. 

Key provisions of the agreement include:

. The Getty will transfer 40 objects to Italy, including the Cult Statue of a Goddess .  Officials from Italy and the Getty Museum will develop a schedule for the transfer of the objects over the next several months, with the exception of the Cult Statue of a Goddess , which will remain on display at the Getty Villa until 2010;

. The parties agree to defer further discussions on the Statue of a Victorious Youth until the outcome of ongoing legal proceedings which are now underway in Pesaro, Italy;

. Italy and the Getty agree to broad cultural collaboration that will include loans of significant art works, joint exhibitions, research, and conservation projects.

Both sides said that they were pleased that after these lengthy and complex discussions they have reached an agreement and are now moving towards a renewed collaborative relationship.
