Son of the playwright Luigi PirandelloFausto he trained first as a sculptor and then, from 1920, as a painter Free Nude Schoolof theAcademy of Rome. The first works were influenced by the Viennese Secession Klimt and of theGerman Expressionism. In 1923 he began to paint, making his debut two years later at the Rome Biennale and then at the Venice Biennale. In Paris he came into contact with the work of CézanneMatisse and gods Cubists, and with Italian painters SeveriniTozzi e De Chirico, fundamental in the definition of his artistic language of the 1930s. In 1931, in Vienna and Berlin, he deepened his knowledge ofExpressionism and upon returning to Rome he began an intense exhibition activity in the main Italian exhibitions. After a tonal phase, close to Roman school, the artist evolves with a personal reworking of European suggestions and the great ancient tradition, with anti-classical works, with a strong material component. The subjects are those of everyday life, still lifes and views. In 1939 he participated in the exhibitions of the anti-fascist group Current in Milan andUniversal Exposition from New York. In the post-war period, there was a conflict among most Italian artists between post-cubist figuration, in compliance with the directives of the Communist Party, and abstraction. The exhibition activity continues with particular success both in Italy and in the United States. In 1956 the Venice Biennale dedicated a solo exhibition to him. He died in 1975 and the following year National Gallery of Modern Art of Rome dedicates a major retrospective to him.
