Prior to his (controversial burial (because he had been labelled a HERETIC by the Vatican)) burial, three fingers and a tooth were removed from his remains. One of these fingers, the middle finger from Galileo’s right hand, is currently on exhibition at the Museo Galileo in Florence, Italy — FROM Wikipedia.
