Scientists and artists have long sought the great works of Da Vinci's painting, "Battle of Anghiari", is missing. Search continues, but the picture was never found.

Now, the art diagnostics expert from the University of California, San Diego, Maurizio Seracini, along with National Geographic Fellow claimed to have found it.

Seracini says that "The Battle of Anghiari" behind the thick walls of the Hall of the Palazzo Vecchio 500, behind the Vasari mural Girgio "The Battle of Marciano".

Now, the art diagnostics expert from the University of California, San Diego, Maurizio Seracini, along with National Geographic Fellow claimed to have found it.

Furthermore, a tool equipped with a camera inserted into the hole. Cameras look for signs that indicate that there is a painting of Da Vinci masterpiece behind Vasari.

"The data obtained are astonishing," said Seracini who became director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology at the university.

"Although still in the early phases of research and there are still many mysteries to be solved, the evidence shows that we are looking in the right place," said Seracini told LiveScience, Monday (12/03/2012).

Evidence supporting these findings, among others, a black material with a chemical composition similar to a black pigment in the other Da Vinci paintings, "Mona Lisa" and "St John the Baptist".

In addition, there are red material made ​​of organic materials and a cream-colored material that can not be found in ordinary wall.

Seracini also found a cavity between the wall paintings and wall murals Da Vinci Vasari. There is a possibility, Vasari deliberately made ​​to preserve the wall paintings of Da Vinci.

Seracini claims received responses from many quarters. Tomaso Montanari, an expert in art history, for example, criticizes the claims Seracini.

"What does it mean to say that the discovery was in accordance with the work of Leonardo? That could be any of a Renaissance painting. All of Zama Renaissance paintings could be painted there," he said as quoted by the BBC on Monday.

He considered that the invention is not credible Seracini. Montanari's research also revealed that the lack of a neutral team has the right to evaluate the results of the study.

Based on historical records, "The Battle of Anghiari" Da Vinci made ​​the request of Piero Soderini in 1502. Italian paintings depict warriors who beat Milan in the year 1440 in the plains of Anghiari, Tuscany. The painting on the wall stretches along the 6 meter and 3 meters wide.

In 1550an, Vasari was asked to redecorate the Hall of 500. Allegedly, Vasari deliberately did not destroy the paintings of Da Vinci.
