The exhibition tells the work of the Pictor optimus in a long journey through images and words; a navigation made of departures and returns, which have left deep traces throughout the twentieth century and which still inspire new generations of artists today. An exhibition that allows you to get to know de Chirico thanks to a series of revelations that open the curtain on his enigmas, allowing access to his labyrinthine proscenium. One of the main elements of the project is the discovery of the artist’s personal collection, the “de Chirico di de Chirico” which are the focus of this exhibition, composed mainly of a large number of works from the National Gallery in Rome – donated in 1987 by the painter’s wife, Isabella – and the Giorgio and Isa de Chirico Foundation.
