As of 6 June 2014, a partial ban on photographing works of art in Italian state museums has been lifted, as long as the photos are used for non-profit purposes, for study or research, or to promote Italy’s heritage. The lifting of the ban, which still prohibits flash or tripod use, was part of a broader law aimed at protecting cultural heritage and increasing and improving tourism.
