On July 18, 1573, the Holy Tribunal of the Inquisition charged the artist Paolo Caliari - “Veronese” - with heresy and summoned him to defend his depiction of The Last Supper, painted for the refectory of the Dominican monastery of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. 

What really happened on July 18, 1573? 

What was really being discussed?

In this series of paintings, "Feast in the House of Levi" will serve as an abandoned city, whose buildings have lost their original meaning, a city altered by time and circumstance, a city visited by new beings who observe it, wander through it, and relate to it in an entirely unprecedented way.

Or not.
