House of Luigi Pirandello

In Contrada Caos, between Agrigento and Porto Empedocle, the House of Luigi Pirandello (1867-1936) emerges with a view to the “African” sea. It is now a museum, where you will find photographs, letters, manuscripts, relics and thousands of memorabilia from the famous writer. The ashes of the playwright (who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1934) lie a short distance away in accordance with his will, which asked “may the cinerary urn be taken to Sicily and walled up in some rough side stone in the countryside of Girgenti, where I was born.” The House-Museum is the centerpiece of the Literary Park, where you can take a sentimental journey between the yards, streets, neighborhoods and landscapes of Agrigento - places, environments and atmospheres that still vibrate with the experience, descriptions and ideas contained in the operas of Pirandello.
