The Mona Lisa’s Final Resting Place

Yesterday, I posted a story about excavations under the estate of Lisa Gherardini Del Giocondo, the woman believed to have inspired Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. You can read my original post and check out the initial link here.

Today, the Telegraph reports more on this historical excavation in this article.

The aim of the dig is to find Mona Lisa’s remains, compare her DNA with that of two her children buried in Florence’s Santissima Annunziata church, then reconstruct her face and compare it to Leonardo’s painting.
