Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper, exhibited in a special, detached room of the Santa Maria delle Grazie Church, was painted in 1495 as a fresco in the former refectory of a Dominican monastery. The delicate colors on plaster began to deteriorate within short years of the painting's completion and have undergone almost continual restoration in the five centuries since, though some parts of the massive painting are still difficult to discern.
The Castello Sforzesco is a spectacular fortified palace built by the Viscontis and the Sforzas, Signori of Milan, who held sway over Northern Italy between the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. The Castle was extensively renovated around 1900 to house museums and libraries. Particularly outstanding is the art gallery, or Museo d'Arte Antica, containing both paintings and sculptures. Its exhibits include the 'Rondanin Pieta,' last and perhaps most moving masterpiece by Michelangelo.
