Official inquiry over Michelangelo work

An official inquiry has been initiated in Italy to determine if a wooden statue of Christ attributed to Michelangelo is actually his.

The wooden statue of Christ on the Cross was bought by the Italian government for millions of dollars.

The authorities made their move after a number of experts declared that the statue was genuine.

But the statue is at the centre of a long-running dispute, with some experts insisting it is not a Michelangelo.
