Mona Lisa Digs Unearth Tombs & a Crypt

Recent archaeological excavations under the estate of Lisa Gherardini Del Giocondo, the woman thought to have inspired Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, have revealed family tombs and crypts.

Archaeologists are hoping to find Giocondo’s remains and, using her skeletal frame, to determine whether or not the wealthy merchant’s wife served as da Vinci’s model. You can read more about the excavations at this Fox News Article.
