This is her story from Wikipedia

By her death, she was practically venerated by the family. After one hundred and fifty miracles wrought in the behalf of such as had recourse to her intercession were juridically proven, she was canonized in 1696.

Her body was exhumed in 1580, discovered to be incorrupt, but has since become mummified. St. Zita’s body is currently on display for public veneration in the Basilica di San Frediano in Lucca.

The official Roman Catholic website has this report:

The Church’s liturgical veneration of St. Zita was introduced in the early 1500s, and confirmed by Pope Innocent XII in 1696. In 1580, her body was exhumed and found to be miraculously incorrupt. It is venerated today in the Basilica of St. Frediano, where she attended Mass during her life.

St Zita

The skull and bones of Zita is dressed up. Even flowers are kept on her head.

The corpse of Zita is dressed up in different dresses, and the skeleton shifted into different boxes. The bones moved into different positions.

The Roman Catholics claim that they do not worship saints. They just adore or venerate them.

But when you pray to a saint to find your keys, do you worship this saint?

There must be a valid reason for keeping someone who have been dead for 738 years for display inside a Church.

To place a palm leaf in her bony hands, is a bizarre thing to do.  Putting keys in the bony hands would be more appropriate.
