Mona Lisa’s Identity Confirmed

From the nationalgeographic.com article:
A researcher has uncovered evidence that apparently confirms the identity of the woman behind the Mona Lisa’s iconic smile, Germany’s University of Heidelberg says.

She is Lisa del Giocondo, wife of Florentine businessman Francesco del Giocondo, according to book-margin notes written by a friend of Leonardo da Vinci while the artist worked on the masterpiece, the school said in a statement Monday.

The discovery by a Heidelberg University library manuscript expert appears to confirm what has long been suspected.

The Mona Lisa is known as “La Gioconda” in Italian.
