'Pasolini Roma' gives visitors the chance to submerge themselves into the life and work of Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975). Divided into six chronological sections that correspond to the six phases of the Italian writer and film-maker's life and works, the exhibition begins with his arrival in Rome on January 28th, 1950 and ends on November 2nd, 1975, when his body was found near Ostia.
Closely examining Pasolini’s relationship with Rome and Italian society, both of which he became deeply involved, the exhibition explores all those aspects that came to define Pasolini himself; poetry, politics, civil commitment, sex, friendship and cinema.
Curated by the CCCB in conjunction with four major European institutions, the Cinémathèque Française in Paris, the Azienda Palaexpo–Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome and the Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin, 'Pasolini Roma' represents not only the Rome with which Pasolini had such a passionate relationship but also a window into the mind of the man.
