  • [01] The Giorgio de Chirico Art Center, a cradle of culture in the heart of Volos

    The Giorgio de Chirico Art Center, named after the famous Volos-born Italian painter, is a cradle of culture in the heart of Greece's third largest port city, in the central mainland.

    The Art Center, situated on a pedestrian walk next to the Municipal Conservatory, is a new municipal glass building that has been named after the pre-Surrealist and later Surrealist painter, who was born in Volos in 1888 to a Genovese mother and a Sicilian father, and was the founder of the scuola metafisica (metaphysical) art movement.

    The ground floor, mezzanine and second floor of the Art Center, which was inaugurated in September 1990, house the Volos Municipal Art Collection of more than 400 paintings, sculptures, hagiographies, ceramics, mosaics and artistic photographs, as well as periodical exhibitions, the fine arts preservation lab, and a small library.

    The other two floors house the Alexander Damtsas Museum, a permanent exhibition of the Volos-born art collector's Collection comprising some 500 paintings and gravures by mostly Greek artists representing all the important art styles from the late 19th century to the present.
