From 16 May, the date of the extraordinary reopening to the public of the Sala delle Asse at the Castello Sforzesco, and until 12 January 2020, the closing day of the Milano Leonardo500 event, which will pay tribute to the genius with a rich program of multidisciplinary initiatives, visitors will be able to follow in Leonardo’s footsteps through the city with just one ticket, available at a very special price.
The joint ticketing project is a Polo Museale della Lombardia initiative in collaboration with Municipality of Milan | Culture | Castello Sforzesco, Pinacoteca di Brera, Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci.
5xLeonardo – the name of the initiative – is the result of coordination between major Milanese institutions that preserve testimonies of the Master or his students, and that have come together to allow the public to rediscover the works, projects and the imprint that the Tuscan genius has left in the Lombard capital, allowing them to visit all five museums with a single discounted ticket.
The initiative, which takes on historical importance because it combines for the first time, in the name of Leonardo da Vinci, museums with different traditions, legal status, ownership and organisation, will run from 16 May 2019 to 12 January 2020.
The ticket will be valid for 30 days from the date of the visit at the Last Supper Museum, and within those 30 days, the ticket holder will be able to visit all the museums involved: the Last Supper Museum, the Castello Sforzesco Museums and Sala delle Asse, the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci. The “5xLeonardo” ticket must be stamped at the ticket office of each museum, and the ticket holder must also collect an entrance ticket to each individual museum.
Purchasing of the “5xLeonardo” ticket is subject to the booking of a viewing of the Last Supper. The ticket will be available for purchase from 18 April 2019 through the call centre (+39 02 92800360) and from 16 May also directly at the Cenacolo ticket office, for the same day.
The agreement has been made possible because extra tickets will be guaranteed for the Last Supper reserved for buyers of the joint ticket. Thanks to the implementation of an air filtration and particulate control system with the support of Eataly, the number of visitors admitted to the Refectory will in fact be gradually increased, according to a plan that takes into consideration both requests from the public and preservation requirements.
