The Cenacolo di Fuligno museum is dedicated to the Last Supper by Pietro Perugino. This little known convent has been put on the map because of Perugino’s masterpiece, which dates back to 1493-1496.
It would seem that the convent was always destined to be a museum, and over the centuries has housed various art collections. After the 1966 Florence Flood, it was used as a warehouse for salvaged artworks. And today the Last Supper shares its space with a cycle of frescoes by Bicci di Lorenzo from 1430.
The phenomenon of the Cenacolo or Last Supper, appears to have began in Florence. There are eight Cenacoli in total. And some say that it is perhaps here, in Florence, that Leonardo da Vinci got his inspiration to paint the very famous Cenacolo in Milan.

Campus Florence Tip
There is not much information readily available about the Cenacolo di Fuligno. It is however very centrally located and our recommendation would be to just stop by and check it out!! It has very limited open hours to the public so grab brunch somewhere around San Lorenzo and stop by. This is truly and off the beaten path of the average tourist experience.
