The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek art museum in Copenhagen has agreed to return looted artifacts to Italy. The Italian Ministry of Culture has been pushing for the objects’ return for years. The artifacts were once part of a tomb excavated north of Rome and were acquired by the Glyptotek in the 1970s. They will begin their return to Italy in December.
