-Beneath the Capuchin convent in Palermo, Sicily, there lie over 8,000 well-preserved mummies.
-Among them is the mummy of Rosalia Lombardo, a 2-year-old baby girl who died about 97 years ago.
-What sets her corpse apart from the rest, is that it is now considered to be the most beautiful mummy, nicknamed “The Sleeping Beauty”.
KAMI came across this wereblog.com article of Rosalia.
Rosalia Lombardo died at the tender age of two on the fateful day of December 6, 1920, following a bout of pneumonia.
Rosalia’s father Mario, greatly mourning over his daughter’s early demise, went over and sought the services of Alfredo Salafia, a well-known and respected embalmer in Sicily.
Alfredo was tasked to embalm Rosalia’s body, and to preserve it using his very own special embalming techniques.
Now, almost a hundred years later, Rosalia’s body is still in perfect form. It has retained its shape, with her internal organs still found to be very intact.
With Rosalia’s body covered in a blanket and her soft facial features framed by her strawberry blonde curls, many would think she could just be peacefully taking a nap.
