"Il Cenacolo" (The Last Supper), otherwise known as the "Ultima Cena" by Leonardo da Vinci is a wall painting ,realised by the artist in the late 15th century.

The Last Supper is a masterpiece of the Italian Renaissance style, located in the refectory of the convent adjacent to the sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Based on what the Gospel of John narrates, it depicts the fateful moment when Jesus, surrounded by his apostles, announces that one of the diners present would betray him.
Leonardo is said to have tried to study the moods of the apostles, whose expressions show surprise, bewilderment and disbelief at the news they had just learned.
