Pasolini in Chiaroscuro – Exhibition

Pier Paolo Pasolini, perhaps the last European intellectual to have gained worldwide renown.

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.
