Until yesterday, the wall was occupied by scaffolding used for the “hunt” to the lost painting by Leonardo Da Vinci, the “Battle of Anghiari.” The Ministry of Cultural Heritage has not given permission to continue the investigation funded by National Geographic and led by Professor Maurizio Seracini.
