    Uhhh… there is a science behind this. As far as what can be *proven*, unless you snapped a Polaroid of Signor Alighieri, none of it can be proven except (you’re right) for the bone structure… ’cause they HAVE his skull. However, the shape of the nose, the placement of the eyes, etc, are more science than speculation – and details like wrinkles follow the shape of the face. As for skin color, call it an educated guess. Or do you think Dante was black?

    that is such bull. I don’t care if the university of bologna came up with it – how did they know what skin color he was?! this is all just guessing when it comes to the wrinkles and the pigmentation and other features like that. the basic structure of the faces is the only thing that can remotely be proven.
