FILE - In this Tuesday April 14, 2015 file photo, Leonardo da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man" is displayed during an exhibition in Milan, Italy. An Italian court has ruled that Leonardo Da Vinci's iconic Vitruvian Man drawing can be loaned to France's Louvre, solving a long-going cultural dispute between Italy and France. The Venice court last week had suspended the loan of the world-famous drawing, which is part of a batch of works by Leonardo and Raphael that the Italian government had agreed to send to Paris. Wednesday’s ruling cleared the way to the loan, rejecting a complaint filed by an Italian heritage group, Italia Nostra (Our Italy), which contended that the drawing was too fragile to travel and risked being damaged.
