The inside story

Leonardo da Vinci's vineyard, replanted after more than 600 years and back to its former glory. Just a stone's throw from the absolute masterpiece of the Renaissance genius, the Last Supper, housed in the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie, you can visit the reborn vineyard, which Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan, gave to Leonardo in 1498 as a token of gratitude for painting the Last Supper. The artist, who was passionate about wine, greatly appreciated this gift, which among other things would allow him to obtain the coveted citizenship of Milan, since he was then owner of a land plot of about 8,300 square meters in the heart of the city center. The dream didn't come true because, a few months later, Ludovico Sforza lost his power. But the vineyard continued to have deep sentimental value for Leonardo and remained untouched until the 1920s, only to be destroyed during the Second World War in 1943.

Fortunately, not all was lost. Some plants were saved by Piero Portaluppi, the architect who restored the House of Atellani, a family of courtiers Sforza. Right in the backyard of this private building, the vineyard of Leonardo was replanted, in its original location, with the help of the University of Agricultural Sciences in Milan, the Confagricoltura and the Foundation of Portaluppi. For the entire period of the Expo, until 31 October 2015, you can visit, in addition to the vineyard, even the palace of Atellani, an authentic house-museum. You will take a trip back in time, allowing you to rebuild the bond between Leonardo da Vinci and the city of Milan.
