Mona Lisa, aka Lady Lisa del Giocondo

Giorgio Vasari seems to have been right when, in 1550,
he called La Gioconda "Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo",
wife of Francesco del Giocondo.
According to some 1503 records found at the Heidelberg
University by Armin Schlechter, Mona Lisa identity
is eventually confirmed.

Leonardo da Vinci, La Joconde,
77x53cm - Paris, Musée du Louvre.

But the mistery still seems unfolded...

... following a Feb 3/2011 update :

Italian researchers who specialise in resolving art mysteries, pretend the disputed identity
of the model for Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa... was a man.
