Cenacolo di Sant'Apollonia - Convent of Sant'Apollonia

Sant'Apollonia

The end wall of the Cenacolo di Sant'Apollonia (9.75 x 9.10 m) was decorated with frescoes, although these were never discovered due to the nuns' strict enclosure.

The suppression of the convent in 1860 revealed the existence of only one fresco representing the Last Supper (the upper section had been whitewashed), which was initially attributed to Paolo Uccello and then to the real author Andrea del Castagno (1421-1457), who worked on it after his return from Venice in 1444.

Other three frescoes were discovered above this one, representing respectively the "Resurrection", "Crucifixion and Entombment of Christ". At the time of the restoration in 1952, the three frescoes were removed to be preserved, thus allowing the recovery of the splendid sinopites.
