Summary: An academic and anatomist active in Parma at the end of the 19th century, Lorenzo Tenchini produced wax masks that are unique in the Western world. As far as we know, there are no masks like them in Europe or the United States, or indications of similar preparations in the Orient, but they are still a mystery that has only partly solved.
