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.
