Italy Is Sued For Seizing Head of Alexander Through Manhattan DA, Opposes 2d Complaint

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Sept 6 – The Italian Republic has been sued for seizing, through the Manhattan D.A., the Head of Alexander.    Safani Gallery says it researched and bought the Head on June 20, 2017, for $152,625.  

But in 2018, Italy said it owns it, that it was stolen from the Antiquarium Forensic archives 58 years before.  

 Italy complained to the Manhattan D.A. whose office, the same day, got a warrant to seize the Head. Safani sued in 2019 and the case is assigned to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Vernon S. Broderick. Inner City Press is covering the case.

On September 3, Italy's lawyer filed opposition to Safani's request for permission for a second amended complaint.

The case is Safani Gallery, Inc. v. The Italian Republic, 19-cv-10507 (Broderick)
