Da Vinci Masterpiece "Battle of Anghiari" Possibly Found

The long-lost fresco "Battle of Anghiari," considered Leonardo da Vinci's best work, could lie hidden behind a wall of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence.

Maurizio Seracini said at a recent conference that he had found a suspicious cavity behind the council room's east wall. The wall now houses a mural by 15th-century painter, architect and writer Giorgio Vasari. Historians used a variety of technology, including laser scanners, x-ray machines and thermographic and radar equipment, to establish the original dimensions and layout of the room housing the paintings.
