Emanuele and Nicoletta discussed a recent decision on the unauthorized reproduction of Italian cultural heritage


Emanuele and Nicoletta published a new article on the specialized IP Blog ‘IPlens’, coordinated by Prof. Gustavo Ghidini. The piece discusses a recent decision by the Court of Florence involving an unauthorized full-scale replica of the David by Michelangelo which had been “dressed up” and used for promotional purposes by a famous Italian couturier.

The article reflects, in particular, on the exact meaning of “reproduction” pursuant to the Code of Cultural Heritage, as well as on the consequences and remedies in case of unauthorized reproductions. You can read it here.
