The House of Giorgio de Chirico - Rome

Since 1998, the house where Giorgio de Chirico lived from 1947 until his death in 1978 has been used as his museum. Inside you can discover the complex works of this Italian painter and inventor of Metaphysical painting. The Palazetto dei Borgognoni, dating from the 17th century, is a charming setting for the paintings, drawings, sculpture and lithographs of this artist which are found alongside his published and unpublished manuscripts and rich photographic and documentary archives. The building looks both onto the la Barcaccia fountain of the Piazza di Spagna as well as the Trinità dei Mont and the Villa Medici, whose gardens appear as a recurring motif in Chirico's work. His studio has been restored and its top floor opens onto a charming terrace.
