Mona Lisa’s Body Found?!

How is this possible? Where did they find it? Has Mona Lisa’s body really been found?

Down in the tombs of a deserted Florentine convent, experts have discovered the remnants of what could be the one and only Mona Lisa.

The identity of this mysterious lady has been debated for many years. However, these debates were quelled when the discovery of a note made by a government clerk in 1503 by the name of Agostino Vespucci. He identifies the sitter in Leonardo’s portrait of Mona Lisa as being Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo (Mona Lisa). She was what many believe to be the third wife of a wealthy silk merchant. Not to mention, the sitter in Leonardo Da Vinci’s timeless masterpiece that inspired and astonished people from all over the world.

Silvano Vinceti – Chief Researcher

Historians suppose that Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo (Mona Lisa) died at the age of 63 back in 1542 (makes her over 500 years old today).

Silvano Vinceti (National Committee of Historic, Cultural and Environmental Heritage) was the head researcher that led the team. He reports that it’s “very likely” the remains found in the tomb belonged to our dear Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo, as the time of death was about the same. This was found out through Carbon dating.

He goes on to saying that these analyses carried out were performed “rigorously” under strict scientific conditions. Which makes it extremely possible that they had stumbled across the grave of Mona Lisa.

However, with that being said there is not yet any conclusive evidence to say that this truly was Gherardini as very few remnants were found and the skull has yet to be discovered, so that a recreation of a face could be made.

Vinceti said that with technology advancing so fast, a definitive answer as to whether or not the remnants did indeed belong to Gherardini could be given in a few years with the ‘new sources of DNA we will have managed to scrape together’.
