A recurrent theme in Florentine Renaissance fresco painting is the Last Supper
Cenacolo di S. Croce. Last Supper by Taddeo Gaddi (c. 1340) and, above, the Tree of the Cross and other scenes, fresco. Once attributed to Giotto, it is perhaps the first great depiction of the Last Supper in Florence.
Cenacolo di Santo Spirito. Fragment of a Last Supper (beneath the Crucifixion) by Andrea Orcagna (c. 1370), fresco.
Cenacolo di Santa Apollonia. The frescoed Last Supper (before 1450), above which there are depictions of the Crucifixion, Deposition and Resurrection, is one of Andrea Del Castagno's masterpieces.
Cenacolo della Badia di Passignano (temporarily closed). The first of the great depictions of the Last Supper produced by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1476), this fresco painting is on the wall of the monastery's refectory.
Cenacolo di Ognissanti. On the end wall of the large refectory in the Convent of Ognissanti is a frescoed Last Supper by Domenico Ghirlandaio (1480). The sinopia of the fresco is also visible.
Cenacolo di San Marco. Decorating the wall of the small refectory of the Dominican convent of San Marco is a fresco of the Last Supper (c.1482) by Domenico Ghirlandaio.
Cenacolo di Fuligno. In the refectory of the former convent of the Tertiary Franciscans of S. Onofrio, known as the Cenacolo di Foligno, Perugino painted a Last Supper (c. 1495) with a bright Umbrian background, while the figures appear to have been executed by his school.
Florence, Conservatorio di Fuligno, via Faenza, 42.
Cenacolo della Calza. The convent where Franciabigio frescoed the entire end wall with the Last Supper (1514) was originally known as S. Giovanni alla Porta di San Pier Gattolino. Its current name derives from the hood of the mantle worn by the Ingesuati monks.
Cenacolo di San Salvi. In the ancient refectory of the Vallombrosan abbey on the outskirts of Florence, Andrea del Sarto produced a naturalistic fresco of the Last Supper. Begun in 1519 and completed in 1527, it is his most spectacular masterpiece and one of the most beautiful paintings ever produced.
