Caravaggio claims spark spat in Italian art world

Francesca Rossi, curator in charge of the Sforzesco Castle drawings collection, examines a work by Umberto Boccioni in the same room where Simone Peterzano sketches are preserved. She says art historians who claim to have found early drawings of Caravaggio, a student of Peterzano, are naive and "never came here in the drawings department to scrutinize the works." Yet Maurizio Bernardelli Curuz says he was able to visit the collection after hours and "saw the originals." (Associated Press)
