An emblematic work of art, the Ultima Cena of Leonardo, today offers us new readings: admired for centuries, the painting seems to have told us already every details of that moment so crucial for the Christianity, but watching it carefully we can discover that it still suggests other subjective interpretations. Looking beyond the scene (often represented in art), we try for once to outline, with the due respect, the thirteen chairs on which the apostles and Jesus were seated: 13 designers were asked to give their own interpretation of these until now overlooked seats, those could instead claim the right to be considered truly “historical”! Trying to guess what is hidden and to tell what is left unsaid, we invite everyone to do an “act of faith” and to imagine, together with us, the B side of the painting.
