Full description
In 2010 the refectory of the unknown Dominican convent S. Agostino Bianco, in Palazzo Ravizza in Milan, came back to light. Today the refectory is destined to be an intimate library that preserves and enhances the entire Daverio collection, in memory of the art critic, not only historian but also gallerist and academic. Under the vault, moved in essential arches by Bramantesca, the shadow of the fifteenth-century Crucifixion by Donato Montorfano, dated 1496, emerges on a wall. The fresco hidden in the small refectory preserves a reduced version of the design that is entirely identical to that visible in the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie. The history of the convent and its frescoed refectory, testimony of the glorious Duchy of Sforzesco, runs parallel to that of Casa degli Atellani and the city of Milan.

Difficile spiegare un luogo magico come universo daverio ma la nostra guida è stata in grado di farci immergere nel mondo di Philippe ammirando le sue collezioni private. Consigliatissimo!
