Ultima cena

The Last Supper is a fresco in oil tempera on plaster of Leonardo da Vinci, dating back to the years 1494-1498 and preserved Renaissance former refectory of the convent adjacent to the sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.

The work is certainly one of the most famous depictions of the Last Supper, Leonardo’s masterpiece and the Italian Renaissance in general. Because of the particular experimental technique used by Leonardo and the high level of humidity, the painting appears to be for many years in a poor state of repair. For this reason, from 1978 to 1999 the work has been subjected to numerous restorations through the latest techniques in the industry.

In 2013 was the twelfth most visited place in Italy, with 410 157 visitors and a total gross income of Euro 2,173,031.25
