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.
