Mona Lisa True Identity Disclosed

According to scientists of the german university of Heidelberg, the true identity of Mona Lisa was finally confirmed.

The woman who served as a model to Leonardo Da Vinci's painting "La Gioconda" also known as "Mona Lisa", was the fiorentine aristocrat Lisa Gherardini wife of a fabrics trader with the name of Francesco Del Giocondo.

A note that was found by Martin Schlechter in one of the first books printed with movable characters, confirms that Lisa Del Giocondo was the model for the most famous painting completed between 1503 and 1506.

Writen by Vespuci in 1503 and found on a work from 1477 by Cicerone, he states that Leonardo was working on the portrait of Lisa Del Giocondo.
