A violent life by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Book )

269 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,564 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

La Divina Mimesis è, o avrebbe dovuto essere, una libera parafrasi (o parodia) in prosa dell'Inferno di Dante. Una parafrasi nel corso della quale l'autore si sdoppia in due personaggi: il poeta narrante, cioè Dante, cioè il Pasolini di ora (degli anni Sessanta) e il poeta guida, cioè Virgilio, cioè il Pasolini di prima (degli anni Cinquanta). Pasolini-Virgilio è il poeta civile delle Ceneri di Gramsci, profeta di una eloquenza elegiaca e nazionalproletaria; Pasolini-Dante è il poeta sperimentale di Poesia in forma di rosa che vuole rispecchiare ed esorcizzare i fantasmi della borghesia, del vecchio e del nuovo capitalismo. (Giovanni Raboni)

Uccellacci e uccellini by Pier Paolo Pasolini( Visual )

95 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pier Paolo Pasolini was accused of being a Catholic Marxist by both his admirers and his critics. In this film Marxism and Catholicism do battle in the form of a talking crow and an itinerant priest. From the mouth of the crow Pasolini delivers such lines as "It's twilight, twilight for the great hopes." Pasolini hired the great Italian comedic actor Totò, the face of commercial Italian comedy, to play the role of the priest in this film. It was to be one of Totò's last performances, he died in Rome a year after the film's release. Although he described himself as a Catholic, Pasolini was more interested in what he referred to as the sacred, than in organized religion. In many of his films he questioned the nature of progress, very often romanticizing a primitive utopian past
