We know about Luigi Pirandello: world-famous playwright, Nobel Prize Winner.  But what about his wife, Antonietta?  Hidden in the background,  her life controlled by men, the last decades of her life in an asylum for the insane.  What's her story?


What about my life? My pain? Why I spend my final days in this asylum.

Your life? Your pain? Ha! You would be another unknown if you weren’t married to a famous playwright.
