The last city we visited in Italy was Milan. There we saw Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of “The Last Supper.” At the time of our visit, the painting was being refurbished, and it was very, very faded. It seems easier to see in my photo than when I visited in person in 1979.
I didn’t realize at the time, but this renovation of the painting was just beginning. It took 20 years to painstakingly complete! The painting is located on a dining room wall in the former Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie.
We also visited a famous cathedral in Milan – the Duomo di Milano. Construction began on this cathedral in 1386. According to Google, this cathedral took six centuries to complete.
After waiting for our tour bus, our group headed to a new city in a new country.
