Thanks to sponsorship by the licensee of additional services at the Museum in partnership with American Express, on the 17 dates listed below visitors will be able to admire Leonardo’s Last Supper also in the evenings, from 7pm to 10pm (last admission at 9.45pm), beyond the usual visiting hours (from Tuesday to Sunday 8.15am-7pm).
“This extension of the hours,” points out Emanuela Daffra, “will enable 420 visitors to enter the museum on each of these evenings. It is one step forward in our policy of increasing admissions responsibly, and not just occasionally, to the museum of the Last Supper, whose preservation imposes strict limits on visitor numbers.”
“We are excited to support this important initiative that aims to enhance beauty and promote responsible access to art,” said Piotr Pogorzelski, Vice President and General Manager, Global Merchant Services Italia of American Express.
In some time slots (at 7.30p, and 9pm) visitors will also be able to join guided tours of the museum in Italian.
Two of the evenings will be really special, for the great symbolic value of the dates chosen, evident in the admission charge of just 1 euro: 6 April, Easter Thursday, is the day when, according to the Gospel narrative, Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with his disciples. Visits will be reserved for the disabled and their carers. “It is a way,” say the directors Daffra and Zanzani, “to stress out concern for social values, also shown by our partnership with Opera penitentiary and – more generally – the role that museums are called on to play in society by inviting everyone to cross their threshold.”
Again on Tuesday, 2 May, the Last Supper will open its doors at the price of 1 euro to commemorate the anniversary of Leonardo’s death in Amboise, France, on 2 May 1519, at the age of 67.
Instead, the extraordinary opening on 3 March will contribute to the MuseoCity programme, the far-reaching initiative promoted and coordinated by the Municipality of Milan. It involves over 90 museums in the city with hundreds of events, including guided tours, workshops for children, lectures, encounters and special initiatives.
“With this first step, the licensee of additional services is enhancing the value of Leonardo’s masterpiece,” says Gianni Curti, president of Verona 83, group leader of ATI, “by responding to the growing requests for visits by the public. Then the evening timetable will facilitate participation by inhabitants of Milan and workers.”
