Remains of the real Mona Lisa found??

According to scientists and historians in Italy, the remains of Mona Lisa have been found, the woman who inspired the famous painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. Her body was found in a crypt in Florence, Italy; it's believed she died in 1542, aged 63. Lisa, real name Lisa Gheradini (married name - Giocondo) became a nun after her husband died. (He was a wealthy silk merchant.) The next step is to employ DNA testing to confirm Lisa's identity, testing it against the remains of her children, who were all buried in the crypt with her. Scientists will then use facial reconstruction to match it to the painting.

According to scientists, small initials could be found in the eyes of Mona Lisa under a microscope...another clue to the mystery?
