Leonardo da Vinci: 2nd May 2019

San Domenico Maggiore
The sarcophagus No 27 on the mezzanine (in the middle of the upper row), which contains the remains of Leonardo da Vinci, is covered with a pink and red cloth. The latter is embroidered with a silver cross.

Today, the 2nd May 2019, it has been 500 years since Leonardo da Vinci passed away. He had fallen victim to an epidemic around the swampy land near Romorantin (France). On 12th August 1519, over three months later – you know according to the tradition of his time he would have been buried on the 3rd May –, the flesh of his body was buried in St. Florentin in Amboise, but his bones were brought back to his beloved family in Italy. There are three places, where they could have been buried: 1. in the Church San Domenico Maggiore, Naples; 2. in Bari (for example in the Basilica of San Nicola); 3. in Vaprio d’Adda, the home of his beloved elder son Francesco da Melzo.

After studying the material I have been collecting over the last 16 years again, I am convinced if the remains of Leonardo da Vinci are resting in the sacristy of San Domenico Maggiore, which is most likely, which was after all the special resting place of Isabella of Aragon, her family, her great-grandfather King Alfonso V., her grandfather King Ferrante, her brother Ferrandino and his wife Giovanna of Aragon, two of Isabella's secret children, Maria of Aragon, and Antonio of Aragon, and some descendants of the latter, and the very close friends of her family, the House of Avalos and Antonello Petrucci, the very loyal Secretary of King Ferrante (this specific sacristy is not the resting place of the Carafa), then we find the remains of Leonardo da Vinci in the sarcophagus No 27. Don't forget, nowadays we can prove all my claims. We can reconstruct the face of Isabella of Aragon, we can do mitochondrial-DNA-tests of her and her (secret) children Maria of Aragon and Antonio of Aragon, and we can reconstruct the face of Leonardo da Vinci and do DNA-tests of him, Maria of Aragon, Antonio of Aragon and Ser Piero da Vinci.

Please share this information with your family and friends.
