Santa Maria delle Grazie

In 1482, Leonardo da Vinci left his native Florence to seek his fortune at the ducal court of Milan. It was a bold move that profoundly transformed Leonardo’s career and personal life.

Amid the bustling Milanese streets and the intrigue-filled corridors of the Castello Sforsezco, Leonardo breathed life into his visions. It was here that he completed his iconic fresco of the Last Supper for the monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie; a colossal bronze horse; countless drawings and engineering designs; and a handful of portraits that would redefine Renaissance standards of beauty.

Art historian Laura Morelli explores Milan through the eyes of Leonardo da Vinci, highlighting the ducal court, the spires of the stunning cathedral, the refectory where monks gazed on Leonardo’s The Last Supper while having breakfast, and the Brera Gallery, which holds some of Leonardo’s most precious works on panel and paper. This virtual walk through the city offers a unique perspective on the enduring legacy of a Renaissance giant.
