Family naked play
Two other students in his class also became well-known artists and lasting friends: Robert Antoine Pinchon and Pierre Dumont.For the next 8 years, he was locked into an educational regime which focused on intellectual development.Pirandello was born into an upper-class family in a village with the curious name of u Càvusu (Chaos), a poor suburb of Girgenti (Agrigento, a town in southern Sicily).His father, Stefano, belonged to a wealthy family involved in the sulphur industry, and his mother, Caterina Ricci Gramitto, was also of a well-to-do background, descending from a family of the bourgeois professional class of Agrigento.But the open participation in the Garibaldian cause and the strong sense of idealism of those early years were quickly transformed, above all in Caterina, into an angry and bitter disappointment with the new reality created by the unification.Pirandello would eventually assimilate this sense of betrayal and resentment and express it in several of his poems and in his novel The Old and the Young.Uber for instance, is helping over 20,000 drivers in London to make a wage, while Airbnb is supplying countless house owners with an additional income source.
Duchamp has had an immense impact on twentieth-century and twenty first-century art; and he had a seminal influence on the development of conceptual art.
Pirandello's works include novels, hundreds of short stories, and about 40 plays, some of which are written in Sicilian.
Pirandello's tragic farces are often seen as forerunners of the Theatre of the Absurd.

Lias Saoudi, the band’s frontman, has a reputation for shedding clothing at shows and spent most of the Bowery set fully exposed. How was the show, apart from being in-the-raw and in-your-face?
