In the organizer's words:

This exhibition is a 360-degree multimedia sensation. For the first time ever, Leonardo da Vinci and his famous masterpiece "The Last Supper", including its history and myths, are presented and illuminated in an immersive way: "Leonardo da Vinci - The Last Supper - An Immersive Experience"!

"The Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci is one of the most famous works of art in history. The original of the famous mural can only ever be seen in the dining room of the Dominican monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan for a small window of a few minutes. Too little to even begin to look at the famous masterpiece in detail or to study it down to the smallest detail. In the new audiovisual, immersive 360-degree exhibition "Leonardo da Vinci - The Last Supper", visitors are immersed in the scenario of Jesus' Last Supper, just as Leonardo da Vinci imagined and immortalized it.
Using state-of-the-art technology, every detail of the painting is zoomed in on, no matter how small, and the meticulously staged reactions of the 12 disciples to Jesus' announcement "One of you will betray me!" are shown.

But the exhibition "The Last Supper" delves even deeper into the subject matter. Who was Leonardo da Vinci? What other works were created by him? And to what extent did his passion for the natural sciences, anatomy, visionary inventions and mathematics influence his paintings and other works of art such as the "Mona Lisa", "Salvator Mundi" and the "Lady with an Ermine"? An immersive journey through his famous artwork and his incredible life and work allows us to get to know this outstanding artist and scientist.

Leonardo da Vinci was the most important artist of the Renaissance. He is considered one of the most famous polymaths of all time. Da Vinci was a painter, sculptor, architect, mechanic, engineer, anatomist and natural philosopher. Born on April 15, 1452 in Anchiano near
Vinci, died on May 2, 1519 in Amboise. Alongside the "Mona Lisa", which was painted between 1503 and 1506, "The Last Supper" is one of his most important paintings. When he was around 40 years old, he was commissioned to paint a picture for the front wall of the dining room of the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent in Milan. The painting was already admired by many artists during the creation process.

The work of art in Milan measures 9.04 x 4.22 meters. Visitors can experience "The Last Supper" in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle as a 360-degree projection in its original size. They are immersed in the scenario of Jesus' Last Supper, in the original "L'Ultima Cena", just as Leonardo da Vinci imagined it and immortalized it in his painting. The multimedia light installation brings the original colorful splendor of da Vinci's work back to life. Several restorations had to be undertaken over the centuries to save the original, which had flaked off due to moisture and mold, from decay. The new exhibition now makes the painting more tangible than ever before for the viewer in an immersive experience.

This immersive experience takes visitors on a visually powerful, emotional, exciting and informative journey through the history of "The Last Supper"!
