The abbot Francesco Maria Gallarati was an art lover, a connoisseur and a miniature painter. In 1769 he began producing a miniature copy of Leonardo’s Last Supper, measuring slightly more than a meter in length, with the painted figures being a little taller than 20 centimetres. Probably following a suggestion put forward by Gallarati, in 1770 the painter Giuseppe Mazza was charged with restoring the Last Supper. The restoration was a failure and Gallarati was harshly criticised too. However, in 1792 he managed to be conferred an honorary appointment by Victor Amadeus III of Savoy, to whom he had sold his miniature copy. Gallarati also wrote a Descrizione Ragionata del Cenacolo, a work that has remained unpublished and that contains plenty of interesting information about the making of the miniature copy.
