Her part in the lecture series was why is the Mona Lisa the most recognizable painting in the world. Her partner was the famed art historian and identity sleuth Dr. Silvano Vicenti.
After years of research Vinceti concluded that the Mona Lisa was a mixture of Lisa Gherardini and Salai (Gian Giacomo Caprotti). The famed smile belonged to Salai.
The artist believes that the Mona Lisa is 100 % Salai.

Always in the shadows, for their lives would be cut short if found, this work is also an homage to love, in all its forms.
