Ref.. 8910 - Villa La Lumia in Villaseta At the end of the nineteenth century, Baron Domenico La Lumia of Agrigento, vice consul of France and consular agent of France and Spain, built VIlla La Lumia in Villaseta as a summer holiday residence. It was designed and built by Giacomo Mendolia, the noted architect from Agrigento. Mendola's son who was also an architect, built among others things, the hospital and the headquarters of the Bank of Italy. Despite some architectural details being of a medieval Catalan design, the style in its entirety is eclectic. See for example, the mullions in the upper window of the main elevation and the entrance portal alongside the Tuscan style roof arches. Given the distant family relationship and friendship with Pirandello, given that it was the Villa La Lumia, and with the house of the playwright being the older buildings, along with its location neighbouring the modern-day village of Villaseta, Pirandello would often come in the afternoon to take tea on the second floor terrace together with Baron La Lumia and the artists and diplomats of the day.
