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.

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...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...More

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...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?...More
