In 1525 Bernardino Luini, a disciple of Leonardo Da Vinci, began painting his famous fresco in the sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Soronno. As his model for the Madonna, he chose a young widow who was managing the Inn he was visiting. In gratitude for the honour, the poor widow gathered ingredients from her garden and prepared the artist a liqueur born in the name of love.
