Coinciding with the monologue representation Who is me Pasolini? This conference aims to bring to the public the figure of one of the most influential intellectuals of Italy in the second half of the 20th century. Writer and filmmaker, he was one of the first authors to take the step from literature to cinema, without abandoning the first. The conference is divided into two parts, one devoted to the artistic and intellectual biography of Pasolini, based on the poem Who is me ?, written in the mid-sixties, explaining its context of development and the audience it was intended to, to extend from there to the set of his work. Central to this bio-artistic approach will be his proposal for the use of languages, especially cinematographic language. The other part of the conference will deal with the reception of Pasolini over time, mainly in Spain.
