The undisputed star of the event will be the work of Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922-1975), one of the most important names in Italian literature and cinema of the twentieth century. “An innovator, in his work as a director - commented the mayor, Alberto Giovannetti - but above all a man of unparalleled cultural versatility. A liveliness that fits perfectly with that of our community, the cradle of art, artists and great master craftsmen ”. Two days, therefore, entirely dedicated to Pasolini, whose centenary of his birth is celebrated this year, to pay homage to his work.

The "Cinema d'Autore" review is promoted by the Municipality of Pietrasanta, with the patronage of the Region and the Province of Lucca, in addition to the recognition of the Cinema and Audiovisual Directorate General of the Ministry of Culture and the Pasolini Archive Studies Center of Bologna, and its curator is Alfredo Rossi, an Italian essayist and critic, who wanted to highlight, through the meetings and film projections provided, the cinematographic language of Pasolini and, as a director, he was able to carefully observe Italian society and its changes taking place in the era, focusing on the people and the poorest figures.

The event will start on Tuesday 25 October at 9:30 am, at the MuSA - Via Sant'Agostino n. 61 - with a meeting with director David Friesco dedicated to schools and the screening of his film "La Macchinazione" (2016) based on the life of Pier Paolo Pasolini.
