The abovenews clip is narrated by a (spookily good) automated English voice, but it's worth watching to see the zippy new case built for Leonadro's (alleged) self-portrait drawing, which is going on display in Turin for the first time in many years. Despite all the protective gizmos, however, they seem not to be too concerned about the light levels...

For more on the exhibition, and the latest views on whether the drawing is or is not by and of Leonardo, see this piece here on the BBC.
