I´ve been in Italy just before Easter, and I decided, that I was going to Milan to see The Last Supper. I bought a ticket on-line, I got up at 5.30, and at 8 o´clock I was happily holding my on-line reservation in front of a guy. He looked at me and said: “I can see you bought a ticket, but it´s for tomorrow”. On yes!:) 

I took a tour of the church anyway, and I was so lucky that in the little chapel adjacent the church, there was a temporary exposition of some drawings from Leonardo´s Altlantic Code (read more on Milan is tourism).

I´ll buy another ticket to see The Last Supper some other time I am in Milan. And this time I´ll check the date twice!:) 

Prima di Pasqua sono stata in Italia, e avevo ben pensato di andarmi a vedere Il Cenacolo a Milano. Ho comprato un biglietto on-line, mi sono alzata alle 5.30 del mattino, e alle 8 in punto ero di fronte ad un ragazzo della biglietteria e gli mostravo, felice felice felice, la prenotazione della visita guidata. La sua risposta é stata: “Vedo che ha comprato un biglietto, ma é per domani”. Ebbene si!:)

Ne ho approfittato per visitare la chiesa, il chiostro e la cappella, dove fortunatamente stavano esponendo alcune pagine del Codice Atlantico di Leonardo. Almeno ho visto qualcosa di “leonardesco”.

Compreró un altro biglietto la prossima volta che sono a farmi un giro a Milano. E questa volta controlleró la data due volte!:)
