Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan

The 15th-century Dominican church and convent of Santa Maria Grazie in Milan, Italy, is most celebrated as being the home of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper.” Originally commissioned by Duke Francesco Sforza, it was his son Ludovico Sforza who decided to have the church serve as the Sforza family mausoleum. In the 1490s, the great Renaissance architect, Donato Bramante, added a magnificent tribune to the church and filled it with dynastic imagery celebrating the Sforza family. Buona visita!
