Pasolini Roma

WAMD visited the new exhibition at the CCCB (Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona) about the writer and italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini and his relationship with the eternal city: Rome. We really enjoyed the way it is focused on the different facets of Pasolini's life: poet, novelist, screenwriter, filmmaker, lover, and much more.

The exhibition starts with Pasolini's arrival in Rome, and from here on, it analyses his different creative and life stages giving importance to the society in which he lived, Italy during the 60s and 70s, society that influenced him. The Rome of Pasolini is the Rome of its people and its neighbourhoods, a new city discovered through his very personal perspective. All these creative processes end with his murder the 2nd of November, 1975.

We really encourage you to visit this wonderful exhibition and take your time to feel all the images, writings and films which are shown. Best plan for a sunday afternoon!
