Expo Milan & Amalart - Through the eyes of Leonardo da Vinci: the EVENT

April 30, 2015

 

When you think of a genial and multifaceted personality, certainly Leonardo is the quintessential example.

His fame, however, is due, for the most part, to his activity as painter and scientist and his works rank among the most famous in the visual history of mankind: the Mona Lisa and the Last Supper, works reproduced in any form, copy , venerated and desecrated, inspiration for ancient and contemporary artists alike.

 

In an evocative location exactly representing the refectory in Santa Maria delle Grazie, the recently restored and enchantingly colored masterpiece is casted life-size on a wall by a projector of the highest quality technology.

 

LEONARDO NARRATES LAST SUPPER

June 3th – October 3oth – Via del Vivaio 7, Milan (Italy)

ART PARTNER – AMALART

 

 The Last Supper (Italian: Il Cenacolo or L’Ultima Cena)  is a late 15th-century mural painting by Leonardo da Vinci in the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.  It is one of the world’s most famous paintings, and one of the most studied and scrutinized.

The work is presumed to have been commenced around 1495 and was commissioned as part of a plan of renovations to the church and its convent buildings by Leonardo’s patron Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan. The painting represents the scene of The Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, as it is told in the Gospel of John, 13:21. Leonardo has depicted the consternation that occurred among the Twelve Disciples when Jesus announced that one of them would betray him.

 

 

 

Throughout all the period of the Expo, Leonardo da Vinci will guide you to the discovery of his extraordinary painting with a very innovative and disruptive exhibition.

Amalart will lead visitors in the footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci, on a fascinating, unique and totally original journey, to unravel mysteries and the exceptional nature of these works of art, the ideas, inventions and Leonardo’s philosophy, bringing the master and his thought to life.With a fresh look through his eyes.

 

And just like in the refectory, on the wall in front of the Leonardo’s fresco, you can admire the Donato Montorfano’s Crocifissione (The Crucifixion).

 

 

 

In an exclusive short film -played full screen on the wall and available in eight different languages by earphones (English, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French and German) – Leonardo himself will introduce his painting, making your contemplation more complete and richer in emotions and awareness.

As Leonardo himself testifies several times in the Atlantic Codex, sight is the organ that awakened reflection and self reflection most, why not use this suggestion and create the first “movie art exhibition” through the eyes of Leonardo da Vinci?
 

Visually, on the register level, scientifically, “Da Vinci’s Eyes” is the exhibition event that narrates the human, artistic and scientific experience works from the point of view of Leonardo.
He is the first person to speak, to tell, to speak to us, with a subjective film, that we are seeing the world through his eyes and, as was his life, our experience will be unforgettable: “You do not see the imagination with such excellence as the eye does.“

 

“Last Supper” Dinners

Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and political changes, with roots as far back as antiquity. The dinner, the business meeting and all the events organized into the virtual refectory is accompanied by the Italian cuisine.

 

Italian cuisine in the Leonardo event is characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only from four to eight ingredients.

Italian chefs rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.
