Activists cling to Botticelli masterpiece

Italian environmental activists have taped their hands to the glass protecting Sandro Botticelli's painting 'Spring' at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. They wanted to protest against the destruction of the environment. Thanks to the precautionary glass installed a few years ago, the masterpiece remained intact, the museum said. A rolled-out poster read: Last generation, no gas, no coal

The police took her away. They are now banned from entering the city of Florence for three years.

Along with the Florentine artist's other masterpiece, 'The Birth of Venus', the two late 15th-century paintings are among the museum's most popular works of art. The painting is large, measuring 319 cm by 207 cm.

The glue has been safely removed from the glass.

The newspaper Corriere della Sera quoted the activists in a statement as saying: "Is it possible to see such a beautiful spring today?"
