Rosalia Lombardo died of pneumonia at the age of two in Palermo, Sicily on December 6th, 1920. She is the best preserved child in the world and she was embalmed by the country’s best embalmer, Alfredo Salafia.
Urban legend has it that Rosalia opens her eyes every now and then. Most of the time, it was brushed off as just a rumor, until someone set up a camera and discovered this.
Lol this reaction gif.
Considering there’s a two hour lapse between each photo and only a very little movement in total, nevermind in between photos, this can most likely be chalked up to environmental changes effecting the elasticity of the tissue.
Embalming does not vacuum seal a corpse, it’s just injecting some preservatives into the tissue to slow decay (like putting preservatives in food so it won’t go bad within a day).
Changes in humidity, barometric pressure, and temperature can and do still have an effect on embalmed tissue, making it more dry or more wet, hotter or colder, or more or less swollen than usual. All of those things can cause parts of the body, such as eyelids or fingers, to move. This corpse’s eyes were apparently not glued shut when it was embalmed, which is often done to prevent exactly this occurrence.
Nothing mystical or scary about this, just a shoddy embalming job and small environmental changes (really, unless this body is being kept in a hermetically sealed cleanroom with precisely managed environmental controls, all it would take is a rainy day to change the tautness of the skin on the body and make the eyes open or close).
