The museum can be visited only by reservation.
Leonardo's Last Supper is preserved in the refectory, or Cenacolo, of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milano.
As well as experimenting with the representation of the scene, Leonardo also experimented with artistic means: he shunned the fresco technique (then most commonly used for wall paintings) in favour of mixed tempera on plaster. Because of this, his work immediately showed signs of deterioration and seventy years after its completion it was in already in a partly ruined state. The successful restoration completed in the ‘90s stabilized the painting and brought the original colours back to light.
The mural is extremely fragile and requires meticulous conservation: for this reason visits are limited and must be booked well in advance.
Admiring The Last Supper is one of the most rewarding experiences on a visit to Milano and is strongly recommended.
