The refectory of the Dominican convent annexed to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie hosts one of the works by Leonardo da Vinci known all over the world: the Last Supper. Leonardo painted this fresco between 1494 and 1498, during the kingdom of Ludovico Il Moro, and for the first time it applied a new method to paint the scene “a secco” (on a dry wall), instead of using the traditional technique.
Unfortunately, because of this new technique and the environment factors, the fresco has been subjected to a deterioration that has lead to several restorations. The last conservation intervention has been done in 1999 and after that some new extensive measures have been introduced to preserve the fresco. To maintain the masterpiece at room temperature, the maximum number of people who can get inside the refectory has been restricted to 25 every 15 minutes.
The Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is a historic library of Milan. Named after Ambrose, the patron saint of Milan, it was founded by Cardinal Federico Borromeo (1564–1631), whose agents scoured Western Europe and even Greece and Syria for books and manuscripts. Some major acquisitions of complete libraries were the manuscripts of the Benedictine monastery of Bobbio (1606) and the library of the Paduan Vincenzo Pinelli. Opened in 1618 it is also the oldest museum in Milan. It was created to inspire and encourage upcoming Italian artists. Over the years the large collection of art has grown, thanks to many generous private donations. It contains important works like Raffaello's cartoon for "The School of Athens" fresco; Caravaggio's "Basket of fruit"; Botticelli's "Madonna con Bambino e tre angeli".
