Interesting. We don’t often hear about this kind of controversy. I gather, from the article, that other commissioners of important sites in Italy do the same. The Italian government is right, I think, to be worried about this, although I am sure there are arguments for and against.
Such a shame that this was broken in relatively recent memory, but a great work of detection and reading with the rest of it. Interesting result, as well.
