A previously unpublished selection of approximately 80 works from the collections of the National Gallery of Modern art and the de Chirico foundation.
De Chirico in 1919 defined the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome as a “Museum of horrors”. Almost a century later, the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome dedicates an exhibition centring on his relationship with museums as institutions to the father of Metaphysics. The accompanying articles by Renato Barilli, Mario Ursino and Maria Vittoria Marini Clarelli, offer an up-to-date look at this interesting subject. On display, a substantial collection of works coming both from the gallery itself and the Giorgio and Isa de Chirico Foundation, always attentive to fostering interest in and understanding of the Maestro’s work.
