Italy wants Nivola statues back after NYC removal

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 10 – Italy wants famous statues of horses
sculpted by Sardinian artist Costantino Nivola and his American
colleague Richard Stein back from New York after they were
removed in the redevelopment of a playground under the Big
Apple’s Wise Towers.
    The statues have graced the playground since 1964.
    Nationalist League Senator Linetta Lunseu said she had contacted
the government which had voiced its willingness to “remedy a
deeply incomprehensible act”.
    A Sardinian regional councillor, Massimo Zedda, said the
regional government should ask the government in Rome to act to
get the statues back and preferably place them somewhere on the
artist’s native island.
    Regional assembly chair Michele Pais said “this is a cultural
massacre that hits our culture in the heart. WE will work to
bring back to Sardinia what remains of Nivola’s little horses”.
