The Last Supper: Virtual History

This app allows the user to move inside a three-dimensional re-construction of Leonardo’s masterpiece and to discover its secrets.

Using the iPad, we can enjoy a direct, literally “hands-on” relationship with da Vinci’s The Last Supper.  As if in a time machine, we can go back to the 15th century and climb da Vinci’s scaffolding to examine the still-white stucco, look at his paints and preliminary sketches, and re-live one of history’s most extraordinary creative moments.

The “Bubble Viewer” immersive solution turns the iPad into a sort of telescope that allows us to enter the painting, to experience the extraordinary perspective created by da Vinci in an all-round projection, to sit in front of the apostles, and even move behind them to see the view from the windows in the background. This is a totally new interactive experience, a completely new way of discovering this remarkable masterpiece.

  1. The same developers came up with apps on ancient Rome and Renaissance Florence. They are both the best history apps available! Check them out–sadly, they are rather expensive…but worth the price.
