An initial approach to the Nelli restoration, in the studio

The Next Step

We still need your support as the second and final stage to restore Plautilla Nelli's Last Supper continues! When it comes to art by women in Italy—the country’s rich tradition started with Nelli, Florence's first recognized women artist. Because of its date, sheer size and theme, The Last Supper is one of the most valuable works by a female artist in the world. The restoration will be completed in 2019. Don't miss the chance to be part of history. In the words of Florence mayor Dario Nardella affirms: “Nelli is an example of female creativity, but as with many other women, her work has not had a voice [in history]. As Mayor of the City of Florence, I invite you to support the AWA’s initiative, because all that you do to restore this Last Supper by Plautilla Nelli will be extremely important, not only for our city, but for the whole world—and for all of you personally.” Don't forget, art is a living legacy. Be a dynamic part of it!
