Vintage plate 2018

Behind the walls of a private palazzo, a few steps from Santa Maria delle Grazie Basilica, hides a small vineyard, whose legend wants it to belonged to Leonardo de Vinci. This land was offered in Leonard in 1498 by Ludovic the More, Lord of Milan, as a thank you for his work at the Sforza Court. Confiscated two years later by the invaders, he was returned to the great genius in 1507. Forgotten for centuries, this is now again accessible and open to visitors. The site is discovered through a 7-step course, along which we will first visit Casa degli Atellani, remains a family of courtesan faithful to the Sforza in the xve century, then its garden and finally the vineyard of Leonardo. Redesigned throughout the centuries, the home retains little of its original décor (some beautiful frescoes of Bernardino Luini), but the neoclassical ensemble surrounded by an Italian garden makes it nowadays one of the most romantic sites in Milan.
