Description: Milano: Silvana, 2010. 29cm., hardcover, 95pp. illus., many in color. Italian-English text. Exhibition held at Scuderie del Castello Miramare, Trieste. Summary: The book illustrates the works of twenty-one of the best-known contemporary artists, ‘classics’ in their own time, who dialogue with the world’s most famous Italian master: Giorgio de Chirico. Despite their enormous differences, each artist seems to touch upon aspects of De Chirico’s language, embarking on an unprecedented path through which the reader is invited to discover the enigma that links all of their works. They seem to echo the metaphysical ‘vocation’ that De Chirico identified in Italian art over the ages, and his artistic mastery is as incisive and contemporary as it is difficult to classify and pigeonhole. The critic Alain Jouffroy fully grasped this concept: “De Chirico is a great master who has no followers. He never gains unanimous approval. He creates anxiety because he places himself outside the present. He prevents certainties, opinions and dangerous fashions from crystallizing around him”.
