Italy Mona Lisa

FILE - This Monday, April 26, 2004 file photo shows a man taking a photograph of Leonardo da Vinci's 16th century masterpiece the "Mona Lisa" painting, kept behind a protective glass, in the Louvre museum in Paris. Italian researchers have announced, Tuesday, April 5, 2011, a plan to dig up bones in a Florence convent in hopes of identifying the remains of a Renaissance woman long believed to be the model for the Mona Lisa. The researchers hope that the project can help answer some of the enduring mysteries surrounding Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, including whether the woman, Lisa Gherardini, was indeed the model. The excavations in the Convent of St. Ursula, in central Florence, are scheduled to begin at the end of April. (AP Photo/Amel Pain, File) IMAGE MUST BE USED IN ITS ENTIRITY
