Giorgio De Chirico - Deluxe Room n.308
The Grand Hotel et de Milan has always been the “place to be” for several international artists. Giorgio De Chirico as well, maximum representative of the metaphysical painting, chose it as “pied-à-terre” during the Milanese stays in the 1950s. The choice of the Maestro was also due to hotel’s proximity to the art gallery belonging to his friend Jolas, important international collector and expert of art. The gallery, in fact, is located in Via Manzoni, a few steps from the hotel, and became a sort of dependence for the painter. De Chirico often returned to the Grand Hotel et de Milan and his last stay dates back to a few years before his death, on the occasion of the Milan Triennale d'Arte in 1973, for which he designed the famous Mysterious Baths Fountain.
