The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is a basilica belonging to the Dominican Order, located in Milan. Built in 1400 by Ludovico il Moro, Duke of the city, as a mausoleum for his family. The Basilica was the second Italian site to be included in the World Heritage List by Unesco, in 1980, and together with it the fresco of the nearbyLast Supper by Leonardo da Vinci located in the refectory of the convent.
Built by Guiniforte Solari and modified a few years after the conclusion of the works, it seems, by Bramante. It presents itself with the naves immersed in the penumbra, illuminated by the monumental Bramante tribune with a hemispherical dome erected at the intersection of the arms.
