"LEONARDO & THE SFORZAS - MYSTERIES AND COURTLY INTRIGUES"
 
Before - or after - visiting  Leonardo’s Last Supper and adjacent Church of St. Maria delle Grazie with it’s sumptuous major chapel, planned by  architect Bramante to celebrate the glories of Duke Ludovico il Moro, who envisaged it at his family’s tomb, we will reach on foot - with a pleasant 15 minute walk - the impregnabile Sforza Castle. The former fortress was turned into the most sumptuous of Renaissance residences in the mid 15 th century. Here we will discover the dark side of the court where mysteries and intrigues, jealousy and revenge, family plots and courtly scheming, incautious alliances and secret affairs, marriages of convenience and adulterine relationships were the main ingredients of every day life.
