It’s been one of the most represented religious scenes ever. And it still is, through the many parodies and reinterpretations of the 21st century which, in some way, also served as a perfect pretext to tell worlds and events. Its representative version par excellence is definitely the one created by Leonardo da Vinci during the late 1490s, and kept in the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in Milan (Italy).
