Sixty Last Suppers

    • Thirty years ago, Andy Warhol's final opus, The Last Supper, inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, made its debut in Milan. To mark the anniversary of this remarkable project, the Museo del Novecento is proud to announce a special presentation of one of its key works: the monumental Sixty Last Suppers.
    •  
    • An impressive series in both its size and variety of mediums, The Last Supper (commissioned by Alexandrea Iolas in 1984) includes photography, silkscreen paintings, prints and works on paper. Sixty Last Suppers, which matches the scale of da Vinci's original, is undoubtedly one of the largest and most complex works in the series.
    •  
    • From March 24 to May 18, the painting will be installed in the renowned Sala Fontana, with its dramatic ceiling relief and neon by Lucio Fontana, and spectacular views of the Piazza del Duomo and the Palazzo Reale.
