The party wants Italy to agree again on a loan agreement between Renaissance arts artists Leonard Da Vinci at the Louvre Museum in France in connection with the brand that the artist died 500 years ago.
"Leonardo is Italian, he died only in France," said Lucia Bergonzoni, State Secretary of the High Political Party at the Ministry of Culture.
Leonardo da Vinci was born in Italy in 1452 and died in France in 1519.
"To give Louvre all these pictures, Italy is under the edge of this important cultural sign," Bergonzoni said of the agreement of the Italian state in 2017 to give Da Vinci's paintings at the exhibition in Louvre in 2019.
"France can not get everything," he says, and demands that the debate be re-accepted, as the museum's priorities are ahead of national interests.
The Museum of Scuderia del Quirinale in Rome will, in exchange for Da Vinci painters, loan images of Renaissance artist Raphael to the exhibition in 2020 to mark 500 years since his death. This is not created by Bergonzonia.
"Most of Raphael's work is already in Italy. In addition, in Paris, he said that it is possible to borrow only pictures that can be moved without precisely determining which works he is doing, he says.
