An eclectic and erudite figure, with multiple interests ranging from music to literature, painting and theatre, Alberto Savinio, Andrea De Chirico (1891-1952), was an intellectual of extraordinary complexity, capable of relating different disciplines and weaving the humanities into a visionary and avant-garde language.
On display, divided into different thematic sections, about 90 works selected from paintings and graphic works from public institutions and private collections which, together with the magnificent works of the sculpture collection of Palazzo Altemps, create surprising short circuits, suggesting new affinities in a game of free and original correspondences and agreements, not only with classical statuary but also with the fresco decoration of the museum spaces.
The exhibition brings out, through some fundamental themes and insights, the distinction of a poetic that associated and combined ancient and modern, aesthetics and irony, memory and fantasy in a comprehensive outlook that is highly relevant today. Play, illusory and chimeric structures and plots, past civilisations and the auroral ages, the deconstruction of legendary and mythical tales, the kaleidoscopic images that break the visual balance in unexpected and dazzling compositions furnish the clues that lead us through the labyrinthine Museum.
