Andrea Del Sarto's vivid portrayal of The Last Supper, painted between 1511 and 1527, is perhaps the most famous cenacolo (or Last Supper) in Florence. Housed in the old refectory of the Vallambrosan Abbey (now a museum), attached to the Church of San Michele a San Salvi, the fresco survived the great siege of Florence in 1530 only to suffer great damage from flooding in the 1960s'. An extensive restoration project ensues to preserve this work of art, which is still available to view as part of the museum.

No, the picture here is definitely the cenacolo in San Salvi by Andrea del Sarto. I have visited the building in which the fresco is located. And I am an art historian.

The cenacolo you have pictured here is not the cenacolo of Andrea del Sarto in the refectory at San Salvi, Florence. It is the cenacolo of Domenico Ghirlandaio located in the Museum of San Marco in Florence.
