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... More

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... More

we arrived at the Casa on Sunday at about 3 pm, the gates were locked but no sign or notice to say why? Another family had also just arrived and left disappointed. Was it a one off? Was it not open in low tourist season? It would be helpful if they up dated their tourist website. It looked like a... More

The house is accessible via public transportation and is nicely set not too far from the Mediterranean Sea. There are lots of documents displayed, related to Pirandello and his family, various objects kept over the years, from when the house was inhabited, including an antique vase from ancient Greek times. Outside, there is a long alley towards the place where... More

set on a promontory, the house and grave are readily combined with the trek to the temples. check schedules of house, as they change . bus service from the temples is erratic. cab may be needed.

Visiting the house in which Luigi Pirandello was born needs time. You will retrace the history of his family through the family photographs and have the opportunity to read some of Pirandello's writings. Don't miss reading his last will before visiting the place where the urn with his ashes is buried.
