While his father the Nobel Prize winning writer Luigi Pirandello is more widely known outside Italy, it does surprise me that his son Fausto Pirandello (1899 – 1975) is not and that this is the first UK exhibition devoted to his work. Some fifty of Fausto Pirandello’s works are included in this show and they clearly explain why he was an important figure in Italian culture from the Thirties into the Fifties.
