The Giorgio de Chirico Home-Museum, on the fourth floor of the 17th century Palazzetto dei Borgognoni in Piazza di Spagna, represents an occasion to see the artist’s private and everyday world, as well as access his artistic creativity in a fascinating mix between art and life. The artist lived here during the last 30 years of his life, from 1948 to 1978, together with his second wife Isabella Pakszwer Far who continued to live here until 1990, the year of her death, and thanks to whom the De Chirico home has been accessible since 1998. It opens up on three levels, and 60 paintings and sculptures ranging from the 1930s up to the last years of De Chirico’s career are exhibited in the sumptuous rooms of the first floor. They start with some d’apres drawn from the great Masters, passing through the corpus of the Vite silent (Silent lives), up to the last “neometaphysical” period and to bronze, gold or silver sculptures. An original itinerary that reaches its peak in the artist’s studio on the second floor, where the light that filters from the large skylight shines on the easel and painter’s objects, left there as if they were ready for his next work, and on the plaster models, his books and period photos.
