PASOLINI 100 YEARS OLD, MARAINI RELIVES IN LETTERS, ESSAYS and POEMS
Presented and commented on webinar from Italy by the author,
Unique and unrepeatable in his artistic, human and prophetic journey, Pier Pasolini, born on March 5, 1922, in Casarsa della Delizia, in the Friulian countryside, is celebrated 100 years after his birth, in 2022, with many special events that bring us back to the poet, the writer, the director, and the brilliant intellectual.
DACIA MARAINI, in her latest personal book, ‘CARO PIER PAOLO,’ combines past, present and future in a memoir in the form of letters. Through these letters Maraini, who is the winner of the Premio Strega and Premio Campiello, and was also one of the closest friends of Pier Paolo Pasolini, weaves an intimate and sincere dialogue made up of artistic and cinematographic experiences, ideas and travels. Fifty years after that very deep wound that was the death of Pasolini in 1975, these letters represent a timeless, delicate correspondence, where everything is present and alive and dreams play a central role.
