Saturday 3 at the Pomarancio Garden an introduction to Pasolini in 33 voices: meeting led by Paola Margheriti
(UNWEB) Castiglione del Lago, “Essential lexicon. Introduction to Pasolini in 33 voices” is a book that allows you to acquire the essential knowledge for the reader who for the first time decides to approach the production and complex figure of Pier Paolo Pasolini.
Writer, poet, director, journalist, but also philosopher and painter, no other man of culture has been able as Pier Paolo Pasolini to leave such a strong and recognizable trace in public opinion and in the cultural memory of our country. Since his move to Rome, his “corsair” writing has represented the strongest and most desperate cry against capitalist consumerism, against mass homologation, faceless power, the progressive loss of identity of rural society. His was also a lucid, at times cynical gaze on contemporary society which, in those years, emerged from the well-being of the economic boom to plunge, as a spectator, into the whirlpool of ’68 and massacre. One hundred years after his birth, Pier Paolo Paolini with his lucid and pugnacious gaze, with his sometimes courageous and controversial positions, continues to play the role of critical conscience of an entire nation.
At “Narrations: stories, tales, writings”, the review dedicated to the books of the Municipality of Castiglione del Lago, on Saturday 3 September at 6 pm at the Cafe Pomarancio in the Medieval Fortress, Francesco Ricci, teacher and essayist, arrives with his new ” Essential lexicon. Introduction to Pasolini in 33 voices “(Ed. Primamedia): the meeting will be conducted by the journalist Paola Margheriti.
The essay allows, in relation to Pasolini’s biography and work, to be able to move consciously between the pages of his books and in front of the images of his films. Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975) was a protean artist and the fields in which his incessant experimentalism found expression are many and varied. Francesco Ricci has thus decided to offer help to the reader who for the first time approaches the figure of the Bolognese artist. “Essential Lexicon”, as the title already makes clear, has no other ambition than to offer help to the reader who for the first time approaches the production and figure of Pier Paolo Pasolini. And it does so through an organization of the material (the individual chapters) by items arranged in alphabetical order, from the A of “Accattone” to the Z of “Zigaina Giuseppe”. But what rumors? Those that allow you to acquire the indispensable knowledge in relation to Pasolini’s biography and work so as to be able to subsequently move consciously between the pages of his books and in front of the images of his films.
