Scientists have uncovered a floor in the Church of the former Florentine convent of St. Ursula, where they found the remains of 12 people.

The analysis showed that the fragments of the 1st body belong specifically to the era, years are buried here was Lisa Gherardini, whose made by Leonardo da Vinci is a recognized masterpiece of world art.

Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the history of the human race. Its history is full of legends and mysteries, and one million travelers annually come to the Louvre to look at her mysterious smile. The picture attracts the attention of not only art lovers, but also researchers.

They say that Leonardo da Vinci depicted in the portrait, Lisa Gherardini - the wife of the merchant Francesco del Giocondo, who, as they say, and ordered her portrait from the painter. Moreover it is known that she was buried in the Church of the Florentine convent of St. Ursula.

In 1808 Napoleon ordered the monastery to turn in a tobacco factory, but the tomb under the floor of the chapel remained. Scientists opened the grave and found the remains of 12 people. The analysis showed that 11 of them lived earlier than Lisa Gherardini, and just bones in one of the graves belonged to the middle of the sixteenth century, the time when she died. The body remained bad - just completely escaped the thigh and Shin bones, skulls same could not be traced.

"We can't say with absolute certainty that the remains we have examined, belong to the Mona Lisa, however the probability of this is extremely great", - quotes TASS of the historian Silvano vincheti, thanks to whose initiative and the burial was opened in the monastery. "We wanted to find a skull and recreate the face. However we were doomed to fail, nothing can be done", - said the doctor of anthropology of the University of Bologna Giorgio Gruppioni.

Later it was also opened a crypt of the family of Gherardini, where, as known, were buried, the children of the Mona Lisa. However caught in the graves of the bone has been badly damaged by floods in 1966. Their condition does not allow for a DNA analysis and compare the results with the DNA found in the remains of the Church. Scientists hope that in the future there will be DNA analysis techniques that allow to accurately answer the question, are discovered in the burial of bones are the remains of the legendary Mona Lisa.
