Rosalia Lombardo - the Most Beautiful Child Mummy in the World

Rosalia Lombardo was an Italian child born in 1918 in Palermo, Sicily. She died of pneumonia on December 6, 1920. Rosalia's father, General Lombardo, was sorely grieved upon her death, so he approached Alfredo Salafia, a noted embalmer, to preserve her. Her body was one of the last corpses to be admitted to the Capuchin catacombs of Palermo in Sicily.

Recently, the mummification techniques used by Salafia were discovered in a handwritten memoir of Salafia's. Salafia replaced the girl's blood with a liquid made of formalin to kill bacteria, alcohol to dry the body, glycerin to keep her from overdrying, salicylic acid to kill fungi, and zinc salts to give her body rigidity. Accordingly, the formula's composition is "one part glycerin, one part formalin saturated with both zinc sulfate and chloride, and one part of an alcohol solution saturated with salicylic acid.

X-rays of the body show that even the organs are remarkably intact.

Fascinating!!
Amazing lengths the parents will go through to hang on. I would imagine it's hell to bury your children.

I bet the Pharaohs are pissed off. They'll have some choice words for their embalmers.

Re: Rosalia Lombardo - the Most Beautiful Child Mummy in the World

There's a book, "Il maestro del sonno eterno" about Alfredo Salafia and the embalming of little Rosalia Lombardo:
http://www.ibs.it/code/9788895709529...del-sonno.html

She's been nicknamed "Sleeping Beauty" because no one would ever think she's actually dead, all those who see her body with their own eyes just conclude that what they saw was much more consistent with a sleeping girl than with a dead body. The manuscript left to his nephew Rosanna revealed the basics and the substances used in the treatment, as you correctly reported, but their dosage is still unknown: and most likely will be forever, since it seems that he deliberately decided to keep the secret.
Great, great work mate, thanks.


Now the bad news
The body of Rosalia seems to have been RUINED by National Geographic and EURAC, according to Rosalia's sister: this news is dated july 2011, the translation is rough because my english sucks.

Letter written by Rosanna's mom, the sister of Rosalia, the "sleeping beauty": her name is Rosalia as well, she born five years after the death of her sister.

Quote:
"Dear Sirs, respectable authorities, my name is Rosalia Lombardo, I was born in Gaeta, on September 15, 1925, and i'm sister of Rosalia Lombardo, the famed mummy now kept at the Capuchin catacombs of Palermo.
I have the honor, with this letter, to bring to your attention some facts that, in my humble opinion, are incredible and have deeply touched my sensibilities as a sister of the departed.

Every day I see on different television channels and on every public and private networks, people discussing about my sister with references to events and situations, nothing short of "surreal" and also means using petty, but to audiences, which includes the implementation in wave picture of my deceased parents and my daughter Rosanna La Ferla and this systematically happens without due authorization.

To all this I would add that the last time I saw my sister, in 2007, her body looked wonderful, the color of her skin was worthy the reputation that made her famous throughout the world.

Unfortunately I have to point out that one day I've found out that the creature who seemed asleep for so long, now seems another person: she has different hairs, her eyes are now half open and the beautiful color of her skin has become strange ... it seems tarnished!

And you want to know how did all this happen? Want to know who has irreparably ruined my little sister? I know, and when I tried, through my lawyers, to obtain justice on the whole story, have been ignored, threatened, and "invited" to shut up!

But since I have only a few years of life, considering my old age, me and my daughter Rosanna are not afraid of anyone and we have nothing to fear and we want to say the "whole truth" on this sorrowful event that "all", including institutions, covered up until now.

Sending you all the echo of my pain because i hope to open a gate to the possibility that my sister can return that creature that has been admired from all over the world, and not a victim of poor body experiments that have irreparably compromised her body.
Please, listen to me and to my daughter Rosanna in sign of respect for my family and for little Rosalia!
Thanks for your attention. "
The woman is openly blaming NG and EURAC for having ruined the body; she obviously doesn't know what exactly ruined it, all she knows for sure is that now the body does NOT look at all as it looks in these pics, and that the disaster happened during the "experiments" conducted by both NG and EURAC.
