Forever tied to its romanic and gothic tradition Milan shows itself more than able to confront the new horizons opened up by the breath taking shapes of the Renaissance and the new humanistic paradigms. The city will reach the pinnacle of art in Italy, mainly thanks to the wise patronage of duke Ludovico il Moro. Exceptional geniuses like Donato Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci will work for his court, along with the equally great personalities of Vincenzo Foppa and Bernardino Luini.
