This year is the 500 anniversary since the death of Italian artist and genius Leonardo da Vinci. Many cities in Italy and around the world celebrates this Master with a rich calendar of events, and for Festival Italiano we will have an installation in scale of the central piece of the famous L’Ultima Cena (Last Supper), reproduced with tassels from Peter Greenaway’ book Leonardo’s Last Supper. The installation, by Arte Mani, will be in Rialto Centre from Monday 14 October to Sunday 20 October.

And don’t forget to visit the Zona Bambini, with more Leonardo inspired art workshops for the children!

These events are free and organised for educational purposes by Festival Italiano and the Dante Alighieri Society of Auckland.
