This photo of Rosalia Lombardo was taken in 1984. Why is that interesting? She was the last person buried in the catacombs of the Capuchin Monastery 64 years before this photo was taken, in 1920.

Rosalia Lombardo was an Italian child who died of Pnuemonia aged 2 in 1920. Her father had her body embalmed and placed in the Capuchin Catacombs of Palerno in Sicily. It is the best preserved mummy in the catacombs. The strange thing is that visitors to the catacombs have witnessed Rosario 'blinking' her eyes.
