Leonardo da Vinci street art in Rome

Ravo recreates Madonna Litta mural at Rome's Gemelli hospital.

Italian street artist Andrea "Ravo" Mattoni is recreating the Madonna Litta, believed to have been painted by Leonardo da Vinci in around 1490, in an outdoor mural at Rome's Gemelli hospital.

The mural comes after the urban artist recently presented a series of large canvases based on The death of Leonardo da Vinci, by Francois Guillame Ménageot, to the presidents of Italy and France at Amboise, the burial place of da Vinci in central France.

The mural at the Gemelli, which coincides with Rome's celebrations on the 500th anniversary of da Vinci's death, "integrates positively" with the daily lives of both patients and medical staff, according to the hospital.

The work is the latest in a series of large open-air murals created at the hospital by the Varese artist who used spray paint to replicate The Seven Works of Mercy by Caravaggio in 2017.
