Cenacolo di Sant'Apollonia, Florence: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Far too easy to just wander past this place; I only knew about it from my guide-book, and the doorway is just a doorway in a blank wall.
It used to be a Benedictine convent, but nearly all of the building is now private apartments. The refectory is still as it was though, and has some beautiful frescoa dating from the 15th century.
One whole wall is covered with a 'Last Supper' by Andrea del Catasgno; a most striking piece, with Judas foremost and very dominant on the nearside of the table. Apologies for the wobbly photo (it's the other ones, not the main one); no flash allowed, and I have dreadful camera shake (and no tripod....it's on my wish list!).
There are also the remains of a Crucifixion, Deposition and Resurrection by the same artist and, fascinatingly, the original drawings on plaster (sinopie?) are also displayed.
It's free to enter, but only open Tues - Sat from 8.30am to 1.50pm.
