  /AB  ABSTRACT:  Sir Harold Acton's (1904-1994) bequest of 
    the magnificent Villa La Pietra in Florence, Italy, to 
    New York University is now the center of a complex legal 
    battle between the university, Acton's estate,and a 
    woman claiming to be Acton's illegitimate sister and 
    heir.   A final verdict on her claim is yet to be 
    reached by the Supreme Court in Italy.  Although lawyers 
    for the university believe the woman's claim would be 
    baseless even if she could prove her case, Italian law 
    is known to favor blood relationships in inheritance 
    disputes.
