“Fascinating glimpse into the live of one of the 20th Century's most influential painters”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

This house provides a brief but captivating 45 minute tour of the residence of Giorgio de Chirico. You have to book a tour in advance on the website, and pay 7 Euro on entrance. We booked a day in advance for a Friday in March.

Downstairs are many of his paintings from his later metaphysical period and some of his reproductions which provide an insight into his influences and techniques. The guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, giving enough information, but providing space for visitors to admire the works on their own.

Upstairs are his and his wife's bedrooms as well as the room where he worked, all kept as is was when he lived there. It's a fantastic experience for anyone who has admired De Chirico's work - my only wish would be to wander round and look at the paintings a bit longer.

“An Artist's Residence by the Spanish Steps in Rome”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

This is a nice escape from the overcrowded attractions in Rome. George Chirico, who was the founder of the Metaphysical Art Movement between 1911 and 1920, lived in this house by the Spanish Steps in Rome. The apartment has his artwork and there is a nice tour of his works and personal life. It is important to make reservations by phone before visiting the museum/foundation. It is well worth the trip to see Chirico's interesting, surreal paintings and to explore his life while in Rome!
