The Fuligno Cenacolo in Florence is located inside the medieval convent that once housed the Fuligno monks, founded in the early 1300s and renovated around 1430, and is a museum dedicated to the large fresco of the Last Supper by Pietro Perugino, dating to the late 1400s.

The convent, deconsecrated during the Napoleonic era, briefly housed the Archeological Museum and the Feroni Collection, and after the 1966 flood, it was a warehouse for artworks misplaced by the tragedy.

Today, the room with Perugino’s Last Supper also contains frescoes by Bicci di Lorenzo (about 1430) coming from other rooms in the convent, a wooden crucifix by Benedetto da Maiano and an Annunciationby Valerio Marucelli, once on the high altar in the Church of Sant’Onofrio.
