In the 1490s, the great Umbrian painter Perugino painted a Last Supper in the refectory of the convent of Sant'Onofrio, belonging to the Tertiary Franciscans of Foligno near Assisi, that somehow changed its spelling to Fuligno in Florence.
After the nuns departed, the convent became a girls' school and the fresco was forgotten until the 1850s, and was recently been restored. In 2006, other works were added to the refectory, including detached frescoes by Bicci di Lorenzo and a tabernacle by Giovanni di San Giovanni.
