Giorgio de Chirico born in Greece to a Genoan mother and a Sicilian father. He was an Italian artist and writer. In the years before World War I, he founded the scuola metafisica also known as Metaphysical art movement, which profoundly influenced the surrealists.

Most noteworthy the exhibition also includes his monumental sculpture El arqueólogo, from 1968, which constitutes the central point of reference for the entire proposal.
