Giorgio De Chirico
Deluxe Room n.308
The Grand Hotel et de Milan has always been a point of reference for the world's greatest artists. It was inevitable that Giorgio De Chirico, the greatest exponent of metaphysical painting, would choose it as his residence during his stays in Milan since the 1950s. The Maestro's choice was also due to the Hotel's proximity to the art gallery of his friend Jolas, an important collector and international art expert. The gallery was, in fact, in Via Manzoni, just a few steps from the hotel, which thus became a sort of annexe. De Chirico often returned to the Grand Hotel et de Milan and his last stay took place a few years before his death, on the occasion of the 1973 Milan Art Triennale, for which he created the famous Mysterious Baths fountain.
