Giorgio de Chirico and metaphysical art

7 November 2020 - 5 September 2021

From 7 November 2020 to 5 September 2021, at Palazzo Blu in Pisa, the “De Chirico e la Metafisica” (De Chirico and Metaphysics) exhibition showcases the “Pictor Optimus” in a long journey through images and words; a journey made up of departures and homecomings throughout the twentieth century which left significant traces that are still perceptible.

The exhibition introduces de Chirico with a series of interpretations that unveil his enigmas and reveal his magnificent labyrinth. It also includes the artist’s personal collection, known as “de Chirico’s de Chirico”, which is the fulcrum of this exhibition. 
Thanks to the support of the most prestigious national institutions, the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art of Rome, the Brera Picture Gallery (Pinacoteca di Brera), the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto to name a few, but also with the collaboration of the “Giorgio and Isa de Chirico Foundation”, the project in Palazzo Blu presents a series of absolute masterpieces that demonstrate the evolution of Giorgio de Chirico’s research and show the evolution of his brief but extraordinary metaphysical season through its most illustrious exponents.
