Art researchers and scientists said on Monday that a high-tech project using tiny video probes has uncovered evidence that a fresco by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci lost for five centuries may still exist behind a wall of Florence’s city hall.

 

“Together with art historians and scientists combining historical evidence and technology, this research team has unlocked a mystery of  Leonardo da Vinci that has been with us for more than 500 years,” said Terry Garcia, an executive vice president of the U.S. National Geographic Society, which sponsored the research.
