Your guide will give you as much information as possible beforehand, so upon entry you can fully enjoy the wonder of this work of art.
Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper, known for its intricate detail and masterful precision, captures a key moment of Jesus and his disciples when Christ reveals he will soon be betrayed by one of his own. Leonardo da Vinci, considered a true Renaissance man, was not only a painter but mastered a gamut of disciplines which can all be seen in this fresco. Your guide will share with you da Vinci’s geometric composition with Christ as the central figure, and the artist’s choice of diagonal positioning of all of his disciples provides the illusion of connecting Christ visually with them.
Historians have also discovered a musical composition hidden in this very painting, a 40-second hymn which when interpreted sounds something like a requiem. This genius piece of work is not only something to be seen but to those with a more discerning eye, something to be heard as well.
LivTours’ Milan Last Supper Tour is an ideal way to get an on-the-go look at one of Italy’s finest works of art in one of the most important art cities in Italy.
