Housed in a building that dates back to the 17th Century, this museum gives you a glimpse into the life of Giorgio de Chirico, an Italian artist who was a source of inspiration for the surrealists. The house, which he took possession of in 1948, is one he lived in for 30 years; after his death in 1998, his wife, Isabella Pakszwer Far bequeathed it to the state. At his residence, which is in the center of Rome, Chirico sincerely believed himself to be living in the center of the entire world. A part of Casa Museo Giorgio de Chirico houses the artist's personal collection of paintings, portraits and sculptures; the second floor is where his personal belongings and way of life have been preserved. The terrace on the third floor affords some amazing views of the city. Visits can be arranged only by appointment.
