From the Cryptophile website:
Mona Lisa
Thief Alias
True First Name

Well, in 1911 the Mona Lisa was stolen by a guy called Vincenzo Perugia who contacted an antique dealer in a letter signed "Leonardo".
So the true first name of the thief would be "Vincenzo" and his alias "Leonardo Vincenzo".
Ok...then what?

And who is Lisa S.?

The five symbols on the Cryptophyle web page are (according to the Religious Symbols Dictionary linked on the same page):

1. Tau cross
The Cross is one of the oldest religious symbols of all time, from the prehistoric solar cross (an equal armed cross), to the Cross adapted from Pagan cults for Christian use after the council of Nicaea. Cross symbols are among the oldest on earth, and are found in every culture. Crosses are almost invariably symbols of the sun, the sky, and the passage of time, and are linked with most solar deities.

2. Solar cross/Alchemy: Copper alloy
The solar cross is probably the most ancient spiritual symbol in the world, appearing in Asian, American, European, and Indian religious art from the dawn of history. Composed of a equal armed cross within a circle, it represents the solar calendar- the movements of the sun, marked by the solstices. Sometimes the equinoxes are marked as well, giving an eight armed wheel.

3. Ouroboros/Alchemy: Volatility
The Ouroboros is a greek word, and means "tail swallower." The ouroboros is usually depicted in the form of a snake swallowing its tail, and is usually circular, although it is sometimes depicted in a lemniscate shape. The ouroboros originated in Egypt as a symbol of the sun, and represented the travels of the sun disk. In Gnosticism, it was related to the solar God Abraxas, and signified eternity and the soul of the world.
In alchemy, it represents the spirit of Mercury (the substance that permeates all matter), and symbolizes continuous renewal (a snake is often a symbol of resurrection, as it appears to be continually reborn as it sheds its skin.), the cycle of life and death, and harmony of opposites. A double ouroboros (two creatures swallowing one another) in alchemy signifies volatility.

4. Sun/Alchemy: GOld
The astrological glyph for the sun, and the alchemical symbol for Gold. This symbol originated in ancient Egypt as a symbol for the sun God Re.

5. Saturn/Alchemy: Mercury
Represents the planet Saturn, and it corresponding alchemical metal, lead. Alchemically, lead was the prima matera, or primal matter, and represented putrification and decay.

And then what?!

Chapter 2
And another AAAH!!!
On the shoulder in the movie at the first Mona Lisa sequence at http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/davincicode/site/index.html

And in the following art works:
Left side of head: "0.5(1 + square 5)" = the Golder ratio
Left side of the body, under arm: "1-1-2-3-5-8-13-21" = Fibonacci row
To the right of the rightmost head: "P.S." = Priory of Sion
Bottom of the picture┬┤, upside down: "Rose Line" = The Mary Magdalena blood line
In the hair: Fleur-de-lis/French Lily symbol = compas rose? Referring to the Rose Line?
Under the left hand of Christ: "Sang Real"
In the frame of the Mona Lisa, last sequence: Another Fleur-de-lis.
