Museum of Pirandello
Agrigento


On a plain overlooking the sea, in the countryside between Agrigento and Porto Empedocle, lies a solitary country house: this is where the Nobel playwright Luigi Pirandello, one of the most prominent literary personalities of the twentieth century, was born.  Soon after the second world war the house was restored and in 1949 it was declared a national monument and turned into a museum. To this day it exhibits manuscripts, photographs of the Pirandello family and memorable moments of the playwright’s life, personal letters, a collection of programs and posters of theatrical productions and much  more. This is the perfect spot to start a literary journey and explore the places, rooms and countryside which have inspired Pirandello’s creative imagination. A documentary film allows visitors to view the most significant events in Pirandello’s life, such as the ceremony of the Nobel Award in 1934. His ashes are buried under a large stone not far from the dwelling where he was born, according to his last will: ”take my ashes to Sicily and  seal them in a rough rock in the countryside of Girgenti, where I was born.” In the centre of Agrigento there is a Library dedicated entirely to his work: it is located in via Imera and contains all his books and many precious documents. The Municipal Theatre, situated in the Municipality in Piazza Pirandello, is also entitled to Luigi Pirandello and is open to visitors.
