Château du Clos Lucé – “Universe of Creation” exhibition

For the ninth Universe of Creation exhibition, the Château du Clos Lucé invites visitors to discover the traditions and innovations involved in the art of entertaining. From the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci to contemporary dining, this exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the centuries, and shows how dining has always been a symbol of ceremony, full of possibilities and eccentricities intended to impress one’s guests – which is as much the case today as it was during the Renaissance. Milan, Santa Maria delle Grazie
