The story of the Discobolus Lancellotti is absurd and inadmissible. Does Germany want him back? it would be better to also give us back the base which is from the 700th century. This was stated by the Minister of Culture Gennaro Sangiuliano, speaking in connection with the 'Alphabet of the future' event underway at the Intesa-Sanpaolo skyscraper in Turin, commenting on the Germans' request for the return of the Lancellotti Discobolus. “I believe that common sense is needed on the issue of refunds. Where there has been a theft we can evaluate returns.


Since I have been minister, in just over a year the United States has returned more than 400 artefacts to us and the same number have arrived from Great Britain. I also returned some illicitly acquired assets to the Mexican Ministry of Culture. But then it's clear that you can't go that far back in history. I also made the joke about the Discobolus: they will have to walk over my corpse to get it. It is true that it was purchased by Hitler, but fraudulently. We are talking about two dictatorial regimes that complicitly determined this destination in Germany, fortunately the USA has returned this asset to us,” he concluded.
