Sorry, folks, but this guy is not Montalbano. Could be Pirandello, but there's another statue of him nearby.

detailed statue, real size, of a person I don't know. Apparently some person out of a TV-series. What you see on the picture is what you get. No much more to see in Porto Empedocle.

If you know and like the books of Andrea Camalieri you will definitely stop here and take a photo. The statue is right in the heart of Porto Empedocle.
