The Last Supper of Leonardo da Vinci is undoubtedly one of the most important artworks of all times, both for its innovative approach and for the impact it has had on art history. In order to create this unique work, Leonardo carried out an exhaustive research creating an infinity of preparatory sketches. Leonardo abandoned the traditional method of fresco painting, painting the scene "dry" on a wall of the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie between 1494 and 1498, under the government of Ludovico il Moro. Since then, this “Cenacolo” has inspired generations of artists and has arisen many questions and enigmas. Discover them all during a guided tour that will give you the opportunity to see up close the most famous Last Supper of the world, included in the UNESCO Heritage List in 1980.
