    Some of us Americans are trying to help preserve the Italian sculptural heritage; a real shame when others are thoughtless, careless, or feel the rules and mores of behavior around masterpieces don't apply to them.

    It is a previous repair that came off, so the old bonding was probably loose. That doesn't excuse touching it- you don't touch works in a museum, period.
