"Il mistero della Gioconda, la risposta nel DNA?"

Marco Ferri wrote the following article about my research in "The National Geographic Online": Il mistero della Gioconda, la risposta nel DNA?

Unfortunately a small error occured: The bust on the right side is not showing Isabella of Aragon. This is one of the many many mistakes done by the art historians. This is Isabella's step-grandmother, Juana of Spain, sister of the famous Spanish King Ferdinand II (the Catholic) and second wife of her cousin, the Neapolitan King Ferrante, Isabella's grandfather. She is the mother of the famous "Lady with the ermine" (= Giovanna of Aragon, Queen of Naples).
