Pirandello did not say anything to me until I came here. He is however a well known Sicilian author and was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1934 and this villa is where he was born and where he lived. There is a good deal to see in the house but unfortunately all the explanations are in Italian ( I know we are in Italy but I am sure that it would not be a bad idea to have the information in English too) We loved the villa and were very sorry that the path to the gravesite was locked so we could not go and see it

And who doesn't? Well, it *is* a specialty museum but worth a visit. The manuscripts and memorabilia are especially interesting. The walk out to the gravesite is spectacular, and the stone itself impressive and moving.

If you are in the area it is worth popping in to see this house which is a little monument to the great writer. Ignore those criticisms about rude staff, they all couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

For anyone remotely interested in the life of this very famous and revered author, Luigi Pirandello, his birth place is worth a stop. (the theatres named after him are not the same place!!).

Note that Italian is the only language accompanying displays etc. The lady who took us around the displays though was very comprehensive and was able to answer our questions very well, despite our bad Italian!

If you are a big fan of Pirandello's, and you visit the house, don't forget to also call into the Pirandello Literary Cafe which is on the left-hand side of the car park as you face the house. It has some good displays and memorabilia honouring Pirandello, and the owners were very helpful.

This landmark is characterised by the childhood-home and the grave of the artist: beginning and finish; but the description of the life story , the presence of memorabilia and original furniture, curiosities about his literary production are very poor.

Laura teaches many of Pirandello’s plays in her classes and we were very pleased to be able to see this museum that houses many of his personal items.

The Casa is beautiful and is on a cliff in Villaseta overlooking Porto Empedocle. I believe Pirandello was born in this house but as his family’s fortunes fell, the house was lost in one of the many tragedies that colored his life. In spite of that Pirandello visited this house throughout his lifetime and was especially fond of sitting at the end of the trail overlooking the sea under the great Pine tree. This is where Pirandello’s ashes were ultimately buried. That tree was destroyed some years ago by lightening but a section of the tree still remains by his monument and a new pine tree has been planted.

There is another house in the city of Agrigento where Pirandello actually lived. Not surprisingly it’s on Via Luigi Pirandello. Laura and I were walking down the via S. Francesco d’Assisi and didn’t realize the name of the street had changed. We stopped in a square to listen to the children sing Christmas carols and there next to us was a plaque set in the wall of the house saying this was the house where Pirandello had actually lived.

It is important to remember that Pirandello is immensely popular and is celebrated all around Italy. Thus there are many monuments to him and many buildings named after him. I notice that at least one of the pictures attached to this site is not of the Casa Natale di Luigi Pirandello but a picture of the Teatro Luigi Pirandello located in the Piazza Luigi Pirandello at the top of the via Atenea in Agrigento.

Almost a mini version of La Scala in Milan. The puppets of Pirandello are fantastic! I only saw these for a short period of time as it was almost siesta. If you are into the arts, well worth a visit but make sure you arrive early or after siesta time.

I must confess that I had read very little Pirandello and all the books of Andrea Camilleri down the road as it were. As a spur to read some more and provide a few classy pieces of name dropping this little museo is worth a visit. However if, like us, you rely totally on public transport, you may well have a pretty steep climb if you have taken the bus down to the port. Check the times!
