Touting his find as a "real da Vinci code," an Italian musician claims to have found a musical score hidden by Leonardo da Vinci in The Last Supper. "It sounds like a requiem," Giovanni Maria Pala tells the Discovery Channel, describing the short piece whose notes are made up of the loaves of bread and apostles' hands visible in the 500-year-old fresco.
"There's always a risk of seeing something that is not there," Pala admits, "but it's certain that the spaces are divided harmonically." In addition to the dirge, Pala says in a new book he's uncovered a Hebrew message and the image of a chalice. Such a glut of imagery "cannot just be coincidences," Pala insists.
