ANSA gives us a clue in the press release ("Italy won't give up on Getty Bronze", January 17, 2008) which states:

Rutelli vowed to keep up the campaign saying efforts would now also turn to the Far East and northern Europe.

Ministry officials have said that negotiations will focus next on museums, including the New Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, Denmark; the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Miho Museum in Shiga, western Japan.
