Mona Lisa Grave Found, Claims Scholar

Mona Lisa Grave Found, Claims Scholar: by Rossella Lorenzi, Discovery News Jan. 19, 2007 — "The woman behind Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa painting may be buried near a now derelict building in the heart of Florence, according to archival documents.

The exact location of Mona Lisa's burial site, the convent of Sant'Orsola, was just a about 900 feet away from the house of the artist's father, according to the historian, Giuseppe Pallanti."

Maybe not earth shattering news but I think it's very interesting. I've actually seen the Mona Lisa portrait. It's even more fabulous in person than in any pictures ever published. It sat behind a specially tinted glass to preserve it. You also were prohibited from take flash pictures of it.
