The De Chirico exhibit presents more than 120 masterpieces of this great artist of the 20th century. They illustrate the evolution and originality of his painting in an arc of time that goes from his first stay in Paris (1912) and his encounter with the avantgarde (Picasso, Apollinaire), passing through his Metaphysical period and that of Surrealism, until his trip to New York in 1938 and the Biennale of 1940. It is a unique and precious opportunity to revisit the important moments in the production of this artist, from the formation of the Metaphysical alphabet created together with Carlo Carrà up to his Milanese period and, finally, his so-called Neo-Metaphysical period. Arranged by themes, the exhibit intends to reveal the mystery of De Chirico’s paintings, presenting the artist’s imagination, cultural references and fonts of inspiration, which literally helped write the history of Italian art, but also which are still extraordinarily current.
