Italiano English Japanese
In the refectory of the domenican convent adjoining the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie , houses one of the world's most celebrated works: Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper"
Painted between 1494 and 1498 under the rule of Ludovico il Moro, Leonardo abandoning the traditional method of fresco painting, depicted the scene "a secco" on the wall of the refectory.
Upon completion however, it was documented that this technique and enviromental factors had contributed to the eventual deterioration of the fresco, that has undergone numerous restorations.
The most recent being 1999, where various scientific methods were employed to restore the original colours and where possible to remove the traces of paint applied from previous attempts to restore the fresco.
Extensive measures have been implemented to protect the fresco from further exposure. To ensure that the fresco be kept at room temperature, since restoration the visitor intake has been restricted to a group of 25 admitted every 15 minutes.

    Hidden Score Nov. 9, 2007 A real da Vinci code is indeed hidden within Leonardo's "The Last Supper," according to a book to be published in Italy next week. But rather than conspiracy theories, the new code points to a hidden musical score, a sacred text and a three-dimensional chalice. "This is not another spin-off of Dan Brown's novel. It's real," musician Giovanni Maria Pala told Discovery News in an exclusive interview. "I've always been intrigued by the possibility of finding a (piece of) music in the Last Supper, but I would have never imagined to find myself decoding a secret message by Leonardo." Indeed

LEONARDO da Vinci (b. 1452, Vinci, d. 1519, Amboise)
Leonardo was born on April 15, 1452, in the small Tuscan town of Vinci, near Florence. He was the son of a wealthy Florentine notary and a peasant woman. In the mid-1460s the family settled in Florence, where Leonardo was given the best education that Florence, the intellectual and artistic center of Italy, could offer. He rapidly advanced socially and intellectually. He was handsome, persuasive in conversation, and a fine musician and improviser. About 1466 he was apprenticed as a garzone (studio boy) to Andrea del Verrocchio, the leading Florentine painter and sculptor of his day. In Verrocchio's workshop Leonardo was introduced to many activities, from the painting of altarpieces and panel pictures to the creation of large sculptural projects in marble and bronze. In 1472 he was entered in the painter's guild of Florence, and in 1476 he is still mentioned as Verrocchio's assistant. In Verrocchio's Baptism of Christ (circa 1470, Uffizi, Florence), the kneeling angel at the left of the painting is by Leonardo.

Sheet 2A, folio 2r L eonardo was an artist with a consummate understanding of light and shadow, and this is reflected in his science. His observations of the moon in its crescent stage led him to one of the most important scientific statements in the Codex that sunlight reflected from the Earth's oceans acts as a secondary light of the moon. This discovery is contrasted with Leonardo's belief that the moon reflected light because it was covered with water. The diagram crossing the middle of the page shows the Moon's surface as having substance and weight. Next to the shaded Moon, at bottom, Leonardo expresses the view that beyond the bright crescent, which is lit by the Sun, the reflection of light from the Earth's seas gives the rest of the Moon a pale light. "Some have believed that the moon has some light of its own, but this opinion is false, for they have based it upon that glimmer visible in the middle between the horns of the new moon...this brightness at such a time being derived from our ocean and the other inland seas for they are at that time illuminated by the sun, which is then on the point of setting, in such a way that the sea then performs the same office for the dark side of the moon as the moon when at the full does for us when the sun is set...."

leonardo daVinci Collection Gear Study Drawings of gear systems recur throughout leonardo s notebooks, often, as here, theoretical rather than
    Jack: Since the lifting of weights is one ofthe most common problems of the engineer and mechanic, Leonardo gave it much study, designing devices using the principle ofthe pulley, the screw, and, as here, the ratchet in a form that anticipates the modern automobile jack. File Cutter: Though there is no record that such a machine was built, it is workable in principle. It involves two ideas significant for the future: first, the use of a threaded shaft to control automatically the movement of the file blank so that it may be evenly scored by the trip-hammer, and second, the use of a falling weight as a source of power. The latter is a clockwork mechanism here applied to an industrial use. Therefore the machine represents a step toward automation, an idea that recurs in Leonardo's notebooks, but was not to be realized for centuries. Spring-Driven Car: It is doubtful that any such vehicle was ever constructed. Though springs had been known since ancient times, their use to supply power first appeared in clocks and watches made after Leonardo's time. He recognized their potential usefulness in such theoretical designs as this, and in a drawing for a flying machine in which springs were intended to provide an aid to manpower.

Leonardo, Portrait of a Dyslexic Genius.
Leonardo DaVinci was a great painter, designer, scientist, futurist and thinker. He also had the gift of dyslexia. One remarkable indication that Leonardo was dyslexic is in his handwriting. Leonardo was constantly sketching out his ideas for inventions. Most of the time, he wrote his notes backwards. Why did Leonardo write from right-to-left, in mirror image? Although unusual, this is a trait shared by many left-handed dyslexic people. Most of the time, dyslexic writers are not even consciously aware that they are writing this way. Leonardo's spelling is also considered erratic and quite strange. He also started many more projects then he ever finished - a characteristic now often considered to be 'A.D.D.' However, when it came to drawing illustrations, Leonardo's work is detailed and precise. His extraordinary art work and inventive genius are proof that he truly possessed the gift of dyslexia. Our favorite sketch is Leonardo's helicopter. Leonardo was intrigued with the concept of human flight, and spent many years toying with various ideas for flying machines. When he drew his flying machine, he wrote (backwards, of course): "A small model can be made of paper with a spring like metal shaft that after having been released, after having been twisted, causes the screw to spin up into the air." We use our own drawing of Leonardo's helicopter as a quick way of returning to the home page, wherever you are in our site.
