With an infectious passion for all things Italian, Rocky Ruggiero Ph.D. brings to life this masterpiece and reveals little-known facts about the famous painting. You may have seen the Italian Renaissance expert and art history professor on numerous documentaries concerning the Renaissance; he’s the go-to expert on Italy—from the Uffizi Gallery to Brunelleschi’s dome and everything in between.

At Canoe Place Inn’s ongoing series,  The Front Row, Ruggiero will discuss the “first work of the High Renaissance” and explore the evolution of the Last Supper: Were Jesus and his followers (12, soon to be 11) one of dozens of paintings created to adorn “dining hall” walls in Italy? Or something much more?

Wine and refreshments will be served.
