Open the Medici Archives
The Art Newspaper reports on pressure to open up the Medici archives to the public to assist collectors and dealers in their due diligence efforts.

In any event, shouldn't those who claim to act in the public interest and often demand transparency of others, promote rather than oppose transparency here?
