The Garden and its Fountain

De Chirico's Fountain
The Fountain

Built on the occasion of the 15th Triennale di Milano (1973), but based on drawings and projects dating back to 1934, de Chirico’s fountain, which was restored and returned to its original state in 2015, is located in the garden at the back of the Triennale. The fountain was once again filled with water, the two figures of the bathers were replaced with replicas – the originals, partially ruined by vandals, are preserved in the Museo del Novecento, and the sculpture depicting the Fish was reconstructed. Additionally, all the surfaces, whose original colours had faded, were repainted.
