Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922–1975)—radical poet, philosopher, painter, intellectual, novelist, and filmmaker—would have been 90 years old this year. Controversial during his lifetime for his dissident views on Italian politics and contemporary culture, he is now recognized as a visionary, a creative thinker whose writings continue to influence European writers, politicians, and intellectuals. This three-part program considers his contributions from distinct points of view.
