1921, future Literature Nobel Prize Winner Luigi Pirandello
returns to his beloved Sicily for the 80th birthday of his
mentor, famous novelist and playwright Giovanni Verga.
Upon his arrival in Agrigento, feral and unexpected
news catapult him into a human universe populated by
incredible personalities, ghostly visions, distant memories
and melancholy apparitions. While at the height of his
artistic growth, at the same time Pirandello finds himself
still in the midst of his reflection on theater. This irrational
and compelling journey will allow him to confront a
nostalgic past, propelling him toward the creation of his
masterpiece, “Six Characters in Search of an Author” an
eternal work of art which will mark a worldwide revolution
in twentieth-century theater.
