Latona of Veio to be restored at Etruscan Museum in Rome

Ancient statue of goddess with baby Apollo found at Rome in 1916

(ANSA) - ROME, MAY 18 - The famed Latona of Veio, an Etruscan statue of the Greek goddess with her son Apollo in her arms, is to be restored at the Etruscan Museum at Villa Giulia in Rome.
    The 510-500 BC poly-chromatic terracotta work was found in the ancient Etruscan site of Veio at modern-day Portonaccio outside Rome in 1916, along with statues of Apollo, Heracles and Hermes.
    Museum director Valentino Nizzo said the restoration, which was "never more necessary", would be funded by the Roman legal studio Carbonetti e Associati.
    "We will give Latona back her smile," he said. (ANSA).
