An Italian court Wednesday rejected a last-minute bid to halt the loan of Leonardo da Vinci's iconic "Vitruvian Man" drawing and other works to France's Louvre museum, ending a bitter cultural row.It did so after the group Italia Nostra (Our Italy) filed a complaint saying the drawing was too fragile to travel.Rome is lending several Leonardo works to the Louvre for a major exhibition which opens next week.In return, paintings and drawings by the Italian artist Raphael are to be loaned to Italy for an exhibition in the Italian capital in March.The loan was already questioned by Italy's former right-wing government, which railed against the idea of lending Da Vinci works to France.
