CARAVAGGIO BONE REMAINS









The researcher Silvano Vinceti argues have identified the skeletal remains of Michelangelo Merisi (better known as Caravaggio), which contain large quantities of lead coming from his paintings that would explain his death. It is suspected that Goya and Van Gogh died from the effects of lead on their bodies (pain, hematological changes, depression, personality changes). The master of shocking realism and chiaroscuro died in 1610 in Tuscany. Vinceti unearthed the suspected bones from the cemetery of Porto Ercole (San Sebastiano/Italy), guided by certain documents of the time who claimed that he was buried there. Upon finding the remains of a tall, 38 years man, he studied his DNA’s bones, comparing them with the DNA from several local families, the same that agreed by 60%. Previously Vicenti identified the bone remains of Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, proving that his death was due to poisoning.

RESTOS OSEOS DE CARAVAGGIO

El investigador Silvano Vinceti arguye haber identificado los restos óseos de Michelangelo Merisi (mas conocido como Caravaggio), los que al contener grandes cantidades de plomo procedentes de sus pinturas explicarían su muerte. Se sospecha que Goya y Van Gogh también murieron a causa de los efectos del plomo sobre sus organismos (dolor, cambios hematológicos, depresión, cambios en la personalidad). El maestro del realismo y el chiaroscuro murió en 1610 en Toscana. Vinceti desenterró sus supuestos restos óseos del cementerio de Porto Ercole (San Sebastiano/Italia), guiándose por ciertos documentos de la época que sostenían que fué enterrado allí. Al encontrar los restos de un hombre alto, de 38 años estudiaron su DNA óseo, comparándolo con el DNA procedente de varias familias locales, las mismas que coincidieron en un 60%. Anteriormente, Vicenti identificó a Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, estudiando sus restos óseos demostrando su muerte por envenenamiento.
