The rooms in Palazzo Reale in Milan, almost 50 years since the solo exhibition of 1970, again host de Chirico's work in an extraordinary retrospective curated by Luca Massimo Barbero. An exhibition layout made up of original comparisons and unrepeatable juxtapositions that reveal the phantasmic world of one of the 20th century’s most complex artistic figures. The exhibition offers the key to a hermetic art with its roots in the Greece of de Chirico’s childhood, that matured in the Paris of the avant-gardes, gave rise to the Metaphysical art that bewitched the Surrealists, captivated Andy Warhol and finally spread confusion with its irreverent and ironic reinterpretations of the Baroque. Subdivided into eight rooms, the exhibition is organized by themes devised in keeping with unprecedented juxtapositions and original comparisons to create a chain of visual reactions that, as de Chirico wrote in 1918, pursue “the demon in all things [...] the eye in all things [because] / We are explorers ready to set out again.”
