The so famous, debated and even ambiguous, according to the theories of well-known writer Dan Brown, The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, is jealously guarded in therefectory of the Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. Leonardo painted this work of astonishing beauty on the north wall of the hall between 1494 and 1498, during the rule of Ludovico il Moro. The genius Leonardo made this masterpieceto “dry”, instead of the fresco technique usually used for pictures on the wall.Unfortunately, over time, due to environmental conditions and of the historical events, the work has undergone heavy deterioration. There were many works of restoration of the Last Supper, and especially that of 1999 has returned to its original color painting and has removed the previous work of painting. To avoid that the painting can still bedamaged, it is kept under specific environmental conditions, as determined by the air treatment, and is open only to groups of up to 25 visitors at a time, every 15 minutes.
