Milan, 1498. Ludovico called “il Moro” encourage French army in Italy to use them against his enemies. But Milan is now a target too. The city is on the edge, but it has never been so beautiful! The Sforza court is wealthy and powerful and drew artists from all over Italy. Leonardo is only one in the crew, but he will eclipse them all.

The Sala delle Asse, the enigmatic masterpiece of Leonardo at the castle. By the turn of this room, reserved for official occasions, the Moro wanted something special. And Leonardo has created for him this small forest indoors: a blend of art and history that is both a work of art and, in the pure style of Leonardo, a complex symbolic system. The grandiose dream of Ludovico il Moro, the great patron of Leonardo, and his dramatic failure. The disappeared Milan: between secret passages and canals lost history of the “Invisible City”.

The Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a masterpiece of the Renaissance by Bramante: Ludovico il Moro loved this church and dreamed of making it the mausoleum of his family. He has spared no efforts to make it unique. The Last Supper, the masterpiece that changed Western art. A work that does not need presentations: one of the highest points of Leonardo’s art, synthesis of his genius and, unfortunately, also of its defects.
