Vigna di Leonardo – Casa degli Atellani
Just a few steps from the Basilica of Santa Maria delle Grazie we find the Atellani House, donated by Duke Ludovico “il Moro” Sforza to his courtiers, the Atellani family. It was purchased by Ettore Conti in 1919. Conti commissioned architect Piero Portaluppi to restore the villa. Leonardo da Vinci was a guest of this hisotric house placed near his vineyard, donated to him by Il Moro in 1499. These vines live again today thanks to the studies of enologist Luca Maroni and Professor Scienza.
