Giorgio de Chirico House Museum has been opened to the public in 1998, after a careful restoration, on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the artist’s passing.
Located on the fourth and last floor of the 17th century Palazzetto dei Borgognoni in Piazza di Spagna, the House was described in his Memoirs as “the centre of the centre of the world”. It exhibits a collection of paintings (ranging from the late 1920s until the mid-1970s) that offers the visitor a unique experience of de Chirico’s artistic production.
The first of two living rooms is dedicated to the works executed during the 1940s and 1950s, including a wide array of Old Master pastiches, as well as several self-portraits and portraits of his wife Isabella.
A selection of still-life can be seen in the Dining Room together with the silver and gold patinas sculptures that reinterpret the Homeric myths.
The second part of the apartment (extended during the 1960s) shows some of de Chirico’s so-called Neo-metaphysical works. The upper floor preserves the artist’s atelier.
