    I like how this woman sounds

    She would not have been speaking modern Italian (as in the sample you get to listen to) because she purports to be a 16th Century tuscan lady.

    Voice reconstructed from skull and other skeletal measurements derived from the Mona Lisa painting.

    I guess you could call this Applied Physical Anthropology.
    I can think of other cases where reconstructing the voice of a person from the past might be fun.

    This kind of voice reconstruction has also been done with the dimensions found in the remains of a Parasaurolophus dinosaur. Not quite a "Da Vinci subject" but still a relative study!
