Pier Paolo Pasolini the Prophetic Body
Studies on Bach style. Monologue on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s texts
Luigi Attademo, Guitar
Roberto Gioffrè, Acting voice
Forty years after his death, Pier Paolo Pasolini is still a personality to rediscover: an author, a director, a playwright, a thinker who avoids any classification and who left a feeling of ambiguity and complexity that still slips away, beginning with his death modality. An intellectual whose writing is sometimes prophetic – both the critic and the poetic one – and remains controversial and very relevant. Pasolini’s interest for Bach commentator is a little known fact that came about in the first years of his cultural education, when, during the war in Friuli, he heard for the first time J.S. Bach’s Sonatas and Suites for violin. From that musical experience originated an unfinished script dedicated to Bach.
Project curated by Murmuris and Teatro Cantiere Florida’s Multiresidenza Flow
The event is included in the Estate Fiorentina 2015 schedule.

Roberto Gioffrè, born in Florence in 1967, graduated actor in 1993 at Laboratorio Nove. This was managed by B. Nativi, who made him debut as professional. From then on he started a work and study path that brought him more and more closer to contemporary drama. The experience built over the years with Italian and foreign directors (P. De Vasconcelos, R. Silbert, S. Massini, D. Ferry, L. Croce, S. Arrighi, J. Tombre, P. P. Pacin) made him a versatile actor, still keeping his vocation for contemporary material.
Luigi Attademo, considered one of the most important guitarist of his generation, began his artistic careerat the school led by the guitarist-composer Angelo Gilardino, and can number among his masters Giovanni Guanti, Julius Kalmar, Alessandro Solbiati, Emilia Fadini. Prizewinner at Geneva Contest in 1995, he recorded over ten CDs, among which monographs dedicated to Domenico Scarlatti, to J.S. Bach, to the unpublished works of Archivio Segovia, to Boccherini and Paganini. He dedicated most of his activity to chamber music and to monographic projects, among which the complete recording of Bach’s Suites for lute (Brilliant Classics, 2011) and a monographic CD about Fernando Sor (Amadeus, 2014). Among his recent projects, the making of El Cimarron by H.W. Henze and of the Concert for guitar and orchestra by Alessandro Solbiati with the collaboration of ORT.
