The Last Supper is the famous fresco located in the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. It depicts the Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples. The mural is interesting by the fact that Leonardo used a technique of applying the paint dry and not wet, as was the custom at the time. Thus, he could change the parts of the picture that with the wet application would be impossible. Due to the fragility of fresco was not transferred to a museum, and it is now in the place where Leonardo da Vinci worked on it.
