Roman Bronze Bust Returned to Italy

Among the pieces returned to Italy last week was a Roman bronze bust: 
The Bronze Bust of a Man, dating to either the late first century B.C.E or first century C.E. The piece was trafficked by a Paris-based dealer Robert Hecht to a dealer in Switzerland, who ultimately sold the piece to a New York County based individual.
Who was the dealer based in Switzerland? And who was the private New York collector? 

Where was the bust found?
