The Italian Cultural & Community Center will celebrate the 17th Week of Italian Language in the World by showcasing Luigi Pirandello and his writing legacy with a lecture by Professor Alessandro Carrera, the Director of Italian Studies and Graduate Director of World Cultures and Literatures at the University of Houston.

Pirandello is known for his work as an Italian novelist, playwright, poet, short story writer and winner of the 1934 Nobel Prize in Literature for “his almost magical power to turn psychological analysis into good theatre.” Born in Sicily in 1867, Pirandello spent his life studying philosophy and languages in addition to writing novels, hundreds of short stories and over 50 plays. His most famous works include Six Characters in Search of an Author and Henry VI.
