Florentine family tomb of Lisa Gherardini Del Giocondo opened to continue reaserch

epa03818036 A researcher is pictured inside the Florentine family tomb of Lisa Gherardini Del Giocondo as it has been opened in the 'Martyrs' Crypt' at the Santissima Annunziata church in Florence, Italy, 09 August 2013. Scientists will use DNA testing to find out whether the remains of a woman exhumed in an archeological dig in the Saint Ursula complex two years ago belonged to the model who sat for Leonardo da Vinci's famous Mona Lisa portrait. The family tomb of Lisa Gherardini, which lies in the so-called Martyrs' Crypt behind the main altar of Santissima Annunziata church and which contains the remains of Gherardini's husband and of their two sons, has been opened for the first time in 300 years on 09 August, so scientists can compare their DNA to that of a skeleton found in Saint Ursula during a dig by Florence provincial authorities.
