Leo is one of the world’s most famous people. His devotion to his craft and his attention to detail have spanned the generations and today is still considered the gold standard in art, sculpture, paint and stone.
Leonardo de Vinci who graced this earth from 1452 until 1519 produced some of the world’s best known works. He must have been an ancient version of our modern workaholic because the amount of pieces of art he produced in his short lifetime is amazing to comprehend.
Milan’s Last Supper is a perfect example of Leo’s work and Milan is host to not just one Leonardo masterpiece but several.
While you are in Milan you must consider taking the morning to see for yourself the amazing gifts Leonardo has left us in Milan. Leonardo’s most important manuscripts containing thousands of pages of his study of math, physics, anatomy and architecture are open to the public for the first time in history in Milan. The Atlantic Codex is one of the highlights of this escorted group tour though Milan.
The Santa Maria delle Grazie where the Codex is kept is just as impressive with its dark wood interior and tall ceilings that call to a different time; a time of grand excess and governmental power over the land.
You will get to see a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Santa Maria delle Grazie, where the Last Supper is painted. The fact that the painting survived hundreds of years of neglect, war and strife to live and show future generations its beauty is truly amazing.
