From 24 September 2022 to 8 January 2023 Villa Manin in Passariano di Codroipo (Udine), Cinemazero (Pordenone) and the Pier Paolo Pasolini Study Center in Casarsa della Delizia (Pordenone) present the exhibition Pier Paolo Pasolini. Under the eyes of the world , curated by Silvia Martín Gutiérrez, promoted by ERPAC - Regional Body for the Cultural Heritage of Friuli Venezia Giulia, on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of the great Italian artist, poet, writer, intellectual and director.
With over 170 unpublished , rare, unseen portraits by Pier Paolo Pasolini (Bologna, 1922 - Rome, 1975), the exhibition brings to light entire photographic services - hitherto unrecognized - focusing above all on great foreign photographers (some of exceptional fame , such as Richard Avedon, Herbert List, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Jerry Bauer, Jonas Mekas, Lütfi Özkök, Erika Rabau, Duane Michals, Philippe Koudjina, Marli Shamir and many others) and on the places, moments and encounters that have characterized the life of Pasolini , restoring his image of man and artist in the world, fixed forever in dozens and dozens of different poses.
The exhibition, which was born with the important contribution of Cinemazero, stems from a research project conducted for many years in archives around the world by the curator, and developed for the occasion together with Marco Bazzocchi and Riccardo Costantini, with a scientific committee of exception. Thanks to this research activity, the public will be able to see for the first time some completely unpublished photographic services: Pasolini's meeting with Man Ray , to propose him to design the poster for Salò; Pasolini in Stockholm (a few days before being killed), to make himself known in the world of the Nobel Prize; Pasolini in the South of the world, with Alberto Moravia, Dacia Maraini, Maria Callas. When Pasolini goes to look for the otherness, the anomaly, which he then reconstructs on the sets of his films. Or even in film festivals and other occasions, where - as he is never remembered - he meets and confronts intellectuals and filmmakers of his own caliber (Orson Welles, Agnès Varda, Jonas Mekas, Jean-Luc Godard ...).
