History of The Last Supper
The Cenacolo Vinciano, known as “The Last Supper” is the greatest masterpiece of Leonardo da Vinci and was commissioned by the Duke of Milan Ludovico il Moro in 1494. The Duke chose the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie as the burial ground for his family; Beatrice d’Este, his wife, is buried here.
He also decided to bring about some changes to the large cloister and the apse, decorating the refectory with the magnificent da Vinci fresco.
In 1943, during the Second World War, the church was bombed and the refectory was partly destroyed, only a few walls remained undamaged, among them the wall of the Cenacolo, thanks to the use of sand bags which had reinforced the wall.
