Rome's "She-Wolf" may be medieval in origin

News has rocked Rome that the famous Lupa Capitolina statue, that for centuries has been a powerful symbol of the city, may not be Etruscan in origin but medieval.

Researcher Anna Maria Carruba, who worked on the restoration of the statue, believes it to date from the 7th or 8th century C.E., not from the much earlier Etruscan era. The twin bronze figures of Romulus and Remus were added during the Renaissance.
