Where and when
Forty years after the death of Pier Paolo Pasolini (November 2, 1975), through a collaboration project between the Tuscany Region and the City of Florence, some of the most important city institutions propose a shared program in the desire to remember and rediscover this complex figure of intellectual, poet, playwright, director, writer..
The Museo Novecento dedicates three interdisciplinary events between music, cinema and the analysis of an imaginary strongly linked to the visual arts. Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea recalls the figure of the poet with a reading of the author’s poems by contemporary poets on November 5 and the Gabinetto Vieusseux will offer high school students the opportunity of a guided tour in the rooms of the Contemporary Archive in Palazzo Corsini Suarez where the Collection of Pasolini’s manuscripts is kept, besides paintings, objects and drawings of the poet. The exhibition at the Museo Novecento begins Wednesday, October 28, with “Pier Paolo Pasolini, the prophetic body. Studies on the style of Bach. Melologo su testo di Pier Paolo Pasolini”, curated by Murmuris and the Multiresidenza Flow del Teatro Cantiere Florida.
This event also opens the exhibition dedicated to Pasolini from the Teatro Cantiere Florida that continues with “MA” by Antonio Latella and his Compagnia Stabilemobile, scheduled for Thursday 29 and Friday 30 October. With “MA”, Latella outlines the figure of the poet of Casarsa through the words, now angry now heartfelt, the beloved mother Susanna, played by Candida Nieri. Finally, Saturday, October 31, Versiliadanza presents “Thoughts and Songs”, a dance event, music and readings dedicated to Pasolini lyricist made in collaboration with theatrical figures of national fame (as Francesca Breschi who for years has worked with Giovanna Marini on the work of Pasolini), young formations and local artists.
