Pasolini in Chiaroscuro – Exhibition

The new exhibition at the Villa Sauber honours Pier Paolo Pasolini, perhaps the last European intellectual to have gained worldwide renown. He is considered one of the defining public intellectuals in 20th-century Italian history, influential both as an artist and a political figure. A half-century on from his death, his influence can still be felt across the different fields in which he worked: he is read, commented on, adapted, and inspires contemporary creative artists. While he preferred to describe himself as a writer, it was his films that brought him to the public’s attention. The exhibition looks at his inspirations and his legacy. Until Sunday, September 29 at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco – Villa Sauber. Discover more, including the screening program of Pasolini’s films, here.
