Sections of a Leonardo Da Vinci mural which have been hidden for over 500 years are to go on show at this week’s Milan’s Expo 2015.

'Lost' Leonardo Da Vinci Mural Found After 500 Years (PICTURES) http://t.co/LPGp5MtviF via HuffPostUK</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/LeonardoDaVinci?src=hash">#LeonardoDaVinci</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Renaissance?src=hash">#Renaissance</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/art?src=hash">#art</a></p>&mdash; SG Storey (StoreySG) April 27, 2015

The recently-discovered parts of the mural include a countryside landscape, a few houses and a church on top of a steep hill.

The landscape is almost identical to the one in Da Vinci’s “The Last Supper”, framed in the window just behind Jesus’ head.

The drawings were discovered two years ago during restoration work in Milan’s Sforza Castle.

According to records Da Vinci was asked by Ludovico Sforza in 1498 to decorate a room in the castle which was used to welcome guests and ambassadors.
