The Last Supper (Cenacolo Vinciano)

Itinerary Details

Leonardo Da Vinci’s world-renown fresco, whose restoration completed in 1999, after 20 years of work. As each of the single characters, from Christ to Judas, from Bartholomeo to Simon, reveals himself with a slight glare, a suggested movement, or a thoughtfully arched eyebrow, this incredible painting reveals itself as having not just the power of a painting, but also that of a moving image. The positioning of the characters within the fresco corresponds to the signs of the Zodiac, revealing Leonardo interest in astrology.
The painting is located inside the Church Santa Maria delle Grazie.
