A day in the life of Leonardo

Art and more: discover a world of intrigue and passions

Milan, 1498. Ludovico called “il Moro” encourage French army in Italy to use them against his enemies.

But Milan is now a target too. The city is on the edge, but it has never been so beautiful! The Sforza court is wealthy and powerful and drew artists from all over Italy. Leonardo is only one in the crew, but he will eclipse them all… Art and more: discover a world of intrigue and passions!

The rooms of the castle, with their treasures and their stories. The rooms in which Leonardo also walked, but not only him, cruel or just bizarre characters, women of fatal charm and, in the background, a wealth unmatched.

The Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the Sacristy, a masterpiece of the Renaissance by Bramante: Ludovico il Moro loved this church and dreamed of making it the mausoleum of his family. He has spared no efforts to make it unique.

The Last Supper, the masterpiece that changed Western art. A work that does not need presentations: one of the highest points of Leonardo's art, synthesis of his genius and, unfortunately, also of its defects.
