A violent life by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Book )

303 editions published between 1959 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not far from the splendour of tourist Rome are the slum suburbs. Here immigrants from village and countryside, lured to the capital by promises of work, gather and make a painful accommodation with the modern world. A new generation emerges, full of unreal hopes, wily and resourceful, brutal and vulnerable. A Violent Life , first published in Italy in 1959, is the story of that generation. Written by the renowned film maker, poet, polemicist and novelist Pier Paolo Pasolini, A Violent Life is an uncanny fictional chronicle of the author's death foretold. It is the story of Tommaso Puzzilli, a street hood and survivor, one of the ragazzi di vita born of the shantytown and resorting to crime and prostitution to get what he wants. When a flood ravages the slums, he becomes an unexpected hero. Pasolini is a legend whose brutal murder at the hand of one of the ragazzi di vita remains a major unsolved mystery

The Street Kids is the most important novel by Italy's preeminent late-20th Century author and intellectual, Pier Paolo Pasolini.

In the years that follow, drifting ever further from family and friends, Riccetto moves from petty theft to more elaborate cons and finally to prostitution. He is arrested and jailed after trying to steal some iron in order to buy his fianceé an engagemnet ring

A prostitute's attempt to escape the clutches of her brutal pimp end in tragedy for her teenage son.

Durant l'année 1975, dernière de sa vie, Pasolini, âgé de 52 ans, s'adresse dans le quotidien "il Corriere della sera", à un jeune homme imaginaire pour faire son éducation sociale et politique.

Salò, o, Le 120 giornate di Sodoma = Salò, the 120 days of Sodom by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Visual )

70 editions published between 1975 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the titles, Pasolini informs viewers that it is "1944-45 nell' Italia Settentrionale durante l'occupazione nazifascista [in Northern Italy during the Nazi-Fascist occupation]." That, along with the "Bibliografia essenziale" that precedes it, indicates that a political meaning, dealing with the corruption of absolute power, was uppermost in the filmmakers mind. Motives aside, Pasolini's interpretation of the Marquis de Sade's eighteenth century opus of torture and degradation remains banned in many countries, is deemed one of the most disturbing films ever made, and is still-- 30 years after its initial release-- notorious and controversial
